In the present paper, we introduce screen transversal lightlike submanifolds of metallic semi-Riemannian manifolds with its subclasses, namely screen transversal anti-invariant, radical screen transversal and isotropic screen transversal lightlike submanifolds, and give an example. We show that there do not exist co-isotropic and totally screen transversal type of screen transversal anti-invariant lightlike submanifolds of a metallic semi-Riemannian manifold. We investigate the geometry of distributions involved in the definition of such submanifolds and the conditions for the induced connection to be a metric connection. Furthermore, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for an isotropic screen transversal lightlike submanifold to be totally geodesic. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
