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 fourthorder theory of gravity based on local conformal Weyl invariance of the gravitational action. The explicit structure for these equations is given for a timedependent, spherically symmetric geometry. 8 refs.
