Foliated manifolds and conformal heat morphisms

The objects under study, in this article, are Riemannian manifolds foliated by hypersurfaces. Looking at the transverse direction as time, we construct the generalised heat operator and, in the spirit of a time-space extension of harmonic morphisms, we introduce the conformal heat morphisms. Concrete examples of these concepts are presented, as well as, a characterisation of conformal heat morphisms. Lastly, we calculate the heat Lie algebra of the generalised heat operator.
