  • Abstract

Assume that $M^n(n\geq3)$ is a complete hypersurface in $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ with zero scalar curvature. Assume that $B, H, g$ is the second fundamental form, the mean curvature and the induced metric of $M$, respectively. We prove that $M$ is a hyperplane if $$-P_1(\nabla H,\nabla|H|)\leq-\delta|H||\nabla H|^2$$ for some positive constant $\delta$, where $P_1=nHg-B$ which denotes the first order Newton transformation, and $$\bigg(\int_M|H|^ndv\bigg)^\frac{1}{n}<\alpha$$ for some small enough positive constant $\alpha$ which depends only on $n$ and $\delta$. We also derive similar result for complete hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{S}^{n+1}$ with constant scalar curvature $R=n(n-1)$.
