Abstract:One considers a transversely holomorphic flow on a 3-dimensional manifold. We compute the second fundamental form of the normal distribution and we draw some conclusions, one of which is a global obstruction to the existence of transversely holomorphic flows on 3-manifolds; then an explicit form of the first Chern class of the normal bundle is given when the flow is Riemannian. We study the geodesibility of the projections of basic vector fields onto the normal bundle, in the regular and in the singular case. Finally the topology of the singularities of transversely meromorphic vector fields and meromorphic differential forms is studied.
