The Sasaki metric can be determined on the tangent bundle T M over a pseudoRiemannian manifold (M, g). For r > 0 and = ±1, tangent hyperquadric bundles of radius r are hypersurfaces of T M defined by { } T√r M = (x, u) ∈ T M | gx (u, u) = r2 , on which we induce a pseudo-Riemannian metric from the Sasaki metric. Kowalski-Sekizawa [1] have shown how the geometry of the tangent sphere bundle Tr M over a Riemannian manifold (M, g) depends on the radius r. We generalize a part of their results and obtain a new kind of results. First, we consider the scalar curvature of the tangent hyperquadric bundles. Theorem 1. Let (M, g), dim M ≥ 3, be a pseudo-Riemannian manifold with bounded sectional curvature. Then, for each suﬃciently small positive number r, the tangent hyperquadric bundle T√r M is a space of positive scalar curvature if = 1 and of negative scalar curvature if = −1. In particular, these scalar curvatures are constant if (M, g) is non-Riemannian. Next, we consider the case that M has a constant sectional curvature. Theorem 2. Let (M, g), dim M ≥ 2, be a pseudo-Riemannian non-flat manifold of constant sectional curvature. Then, for each suﬃciently large positive number r, the tangent hyperquadric bundle T√r M is a space of negative constant scalar curvature if = 1 and of positive constant scalar curvature if = −1. Combining above results, we obtain the following. Corollary 3. Let (M, g), dim M ≥ 3, be a pseudo-Riemannian non-flat manifold of constant sectional curvature. Then there exists a tangent hyperquadric bundle T√r M whose scalar curvature is preassigned constant.
