A Solution In Weyl Gravity With Planar Symmetry, James Thomas Wheeler May 2015

A Solution In Weyl Gravity With Planar Symmetry, James Thomas Wheeler

James Thomas Wheeler

We solve the Bach equation for Weyl gravity for the case of a static metric with planar symmetry. The solution is not conformal to the solution to the corresponding Einstein equation.


Variation Of The Weyl Action, James Thomas Wheeler Feb 2015

Variation Of The Weyl Action, James Thomas Wheeler

James Thomas Wheeler

We show how to vary the fourth order Weyl gravity action to derive the Bach equation.
