Abstract: If $ x:{M^n} \to {E^m}$ is an isometric immersion of a smooth manifold into a Euclidean space then the map $ \tilde x = x{x^{\text{t}}}$]> (<![CDATA[ $ {\text{t}}$ denotes transpose) is called the quadric representation of $ M$. $ \tilde x$ is said to be of finite type ($ k$-type) if it can be decomposed into a sum of finitely many $ \left( k \right)$ eigenfunctions of Laplacian from different eigenspaces. We study map $ \tilde x$ in general, especially as related to the condition of being of finite type. Certain classification results are obtained for manifolds with $ 1$-and $ 2$-type quadric representation.
