Abstract :
We consider the traceless part $\widehat{C}$ of the difference tensor field $C$ between the Levi-Civita connections of the first and the second fundamental forms for non-degenerate surface immersions in $\S^3(1)$. In analogy to affine differential geometry of $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ where quadrics are characterized by the vanishing of the traceless cubic form, we study the condition $\widehat{C}=0$, give examples and classify non-degenerate surfaces in $S^3(1)$ which satisfy this condition.

Keywords : Non-degenerate surfaces in 3-spheres, principal curvature functions, rotational surfaces, cubic form geometry
