Chebyshev nets formed by Ricci curves in a 3-dimensional Weyl space
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper Ricci curves in a 3-dimensional Weyl space W-3(g T) are defined and it is shown that any 3-dimensional Chebyshev net formed by the three families of Ricci curves in a W-3(g T) having a definite metric and Ricci tensors is either a geodesic net or it consists of a geodesic subnet the members of which have vanishing second curvatures. In the case of in indefinite Ricci tensor only one of the members of the geodesic subnet under consideration has a vanishing second curvature. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
