This book presents results about the geometric conse-quences that follow if various natural operators defined in terms of the Riemann curvature tensor (the Jacobi operator, the skew-symmetric curvature operator, the Szabo operator, and higher order generalizations) are assumed to have constant eigenvalues or constant Jordan normal form in the. Geometric Properties of Natural Operators Defined by the. Next: Geodesic deviation Up: The curvature tensor and Previous: The curvature tensor Recall that the Riemann tensor is. In a local inertial frame we have, so in this frame. Now. so. since i.e the first derivative of the metric vanishes in a local inertial frame. Hence. Using the fact that partial derivatives always commute so that, we get. in a local inertial frame.

In the mathematical field of differential geometry, the Riemann curvature tensor or Riemann–Christoffel tensor (after Bernhard Riemann and Elwin Bruno Christoffel) is the most common way used to express the curvature of Riemannian assigns a tensor to each point of a Riemannian manifold (i.e., it is a tensor field), that measures the extent to which the metric tensor is .

In differential geometry examples of curvature formulas are known which contain generators on the basis of S or A realized by differentiable tensor fields in a natural way.   Let Ξ be a natural operator of Riemannian geometry with natural domain of definition D. Let D 0 ⊂ D be an orbit of G; assume D 0 is an open subset of D. Let π ∈ D 0. The same argument used to prove Theorem shows that Tr {Ξ (T θ π) i} is independent of θ. Consequently, Tr {Ξ (⋅) i} is constant on D 0 and hence the eigenvalues of.
