R i j = R ji Proof : 1. ± • Theorem 6.2.3 The Weyl tensor has the same symmetry properties as the Riemann tensor and all its contractions vanish, that is, C i jik = . Proof : 1. ± • Theorem 6.2.4 The number of algebraically independent components of the Riemann tensor of the Levi-Civita connection is equal to n 2 ( n 2-1) 12 .
