Hypersurfaces in a conformally flat space with curvature collineation

Received07 Feb 1990
Revised13 Aug 1990


We classify the shape operators of Einstein and pseudo Einstein hypersurfaces in a conformally flat space with a symmetry called curvature collineation. We solve the fundamental problem of finding all possible forms of non-diagonalizable shape operators. A physical example of space-time with matter is presented to show that the energy condition has direct relation with the diagonalizability of shape operator.
