Abstract: Ideas of holomorphic and real special directions on complex contact manifolds are developed. It is shown that such directions exist under certain curvature conditions. The special case of the Lie group $SL(2,\mathbb {C})$ is studied in detail.

Keywords: complex contact manifold, holomorphic Anosov flow, special directions, $SL(2,\mathbb {C})$

Classification (MSC2000): 53D10
