Title: Structure of the Main Tensor of Conformally Connected Torsion Free Space. Conformal Connections on Hypersurfaces of Projective Space

Abstract

We give a definition of a conformally connected space with an angular metric of an arbitrary signature. We present basic formulas and classes of such spaces. We obtain the decomposition of the main tensor of a conformally connected torsion free space into irreducible gauge invariant summands and prove that all affine connections obtained from the Levi–Civita connection via the normalization transformation have the same Weyl conformal tensor. We describe all conformal torsion free connections on hypersurfaces of a projective space and give some examples. We construct a global conformal connection on a hyperquadric of the projective space.
