## Abstract:

A certain function is introduced which is useful in the study of a bundle-like foliation on a Riemannian manifold. Under the assumption that the leaves are totally geodesic, the Laplacian of this function is computed along a leaf. From this computation a sufficient condition is provided for the ambient manifold to be locally isometric to a product.## References
