Title: General structure of the gravitational equations of motion in conformal Weyl gravity

Abstract

A general method for determining the structure of the gravitational equations of motion is presented in the fourth-order theory of gravity based on local conformal Weyl invariance of the gravitational action. The explicit structure for these equations is given for a time-dependent, spherically symmetric geometry. 8 refs.
