Ricci recurrent space-times with torsion

  • L. C. Garcia de Andrade


A Ricci recurrent space-time with covariantly constant stress tensor is an Einstein space-time. We extend this result to Ricci recurrent space-times with torsion. The result is applied to the case of Riemann-Cartan space-times with spin density.
