#### Abstract

The warped product $M_1 \times_F M_2$ of two Riemannian manifolds $(M_1,g_1)$ and $(M_2,g_2)$ is the product manifold $M_1 \times M_2$ equipped with the warped product metric $g=g_1 + F^2 g_2$, where $F$ is a positive function on $M_1$. The notion of warped product manifolds is one of the most fruitful generalizations of Riemannian products. Such a notion plays very important roles in differential geometry as well as in physics, especially in general relativity. In this paper we study warped product manifolds endowed with a Tripathi connection. We establish some relationships between the Tripathi connection of the warped product $M$ to those $M_1$ and $M_2$.
