Relativistic segnificance of curvature tensors

Received06 Feb 1979
Revised07 Nov 1979


In thi paper new curvature tensors have been defined on the lines of Weyl's projective curvature tensor and it has been shown that the “distribution” (order in which the vectors in question are arranged before being acted upon by the tensor in question) of vector field over the metric potentials and matter tensors plays an important role in shaping the various physical and geometrical properties of a tensor viz the formulation of gravitational waves, reduction of electromagnetic field to a purely electric field, vanishing of the contracted tensor in an Einstein Space and the cyclic property.
