(p.56) Chapter Six Conformai Curvature Tensors
The Ambient Metric (AM-178)

Princeton University Press

This chapter studies conformal curvature tensors of a pseudo-Riemannian metric g. These are defined in terms of the covariant derivatives of the curvature tensor of an ambient metric in normal form relative to g. Their transformation laws under conformal change are given in terms of the action of a subgroup of the conformal group O(p + 1, q + 1) on tensors. It is assumed throughout this chapter that n ≥ 3.

Keywords:   conformal curvature tensors, pseudo-Riemannian metric, conformal geometry, ambient metric
