Abstract : The notion of quasi-Einstein metric in theoretical physics and in relation with string theory is equivalent to the notion of Ricci soliton in differential geometry. Quasi-Einstein metrics or Ricci solitons serve also as solution to Ricci flow equation, which is an evolution equation for Riemannian metrics on a Riemannian manifold. Quasi-Einstein metrics are subject of great interest in ‎both ‎mathematics ‎and ‎theoretical ‎physics.‎
In this paper the notion of Ricci ‎$‎\rho$-soliton as a generalization of Ricci soliton is defined. We are motivated by the Ricci-Bourguignon flow to define this concept. We show that if a 3-dimensional almost Kenmotsu Einstein manifold M be a ‎$‎\rho$-soliton, then M is a Kenmotsu manifold of constant sectional curvature ‎$‎-1‎$‎‏ and the ‎$‎\rho$-soliton is expanding, with ‎$‎\lambda=2$.
Keywords : Almost Kenmotsu manifold, ‎$‎\rho$-Ricci soliton, ‎$‎\eta$-Einstein, Generalized k-nullity distribution.
