  • Generalized Einstein tensor for a Weyl manifold and its applications 

    Authors:Özdeǧer, Abdülkadir
    Publisher and Date:(Springer Heidelberg, 2013)
    It is well known that the Einstein tensor G for a Riemannian manifold defined by R (alpha) (beta) = g (beta gamma) R (gamma I +/-) where R (gamma I +/-) and R are respectively the Ricci tensor and the scalar curvature of the manifold plays an important part in Einstein's theory of gravitation as well as in proving some theorems in Riemannian geometry. In this work we first obtain the generalized Einstein tensor for a Weyl manifold. Then after studying some properties of generalized Einstein tensor ...

  • On sectional curvatures of a Weyl manifold 

    Authors:Özdeǧer, Abdülkadir
    Publisher and Date:(2006)
    In this paper it is proved that if at each point of a Weyl manifold the sectional curvature is independent of the plane chosen then the Weyl manifold is locally conformal to an Einstein manifold and that the scalar curvature of the Weyl manifold is prolonged covariant constant.
