Abstract

The class of biconservative surfaces in Euclidean 3-space are defined in (Caddeo et al., 2012) by the equation for the mean curvature function and the Weingarten operator . In this paper, we consider the more general case that surfaces in satisfying for some constant are called generalized bi-conservative surfaces. We show that this class of surfaces are linear Weingarten surfaces. We also give a complete classification of generalized bi-conservative surfaces in .
