Abstract

In this paper, we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for a conformal mapping between two Weyl manifolds to preserve Einstein tensor. Then we prove that some basic curvature tensors of $W_n$ are preserved by such a conformal mapping if and only if the covector field of the mapping is locally a gradient. Also, we obtained the relation between the scalar curvatures of the Weyl manifolds related by a conformal mapping preserving the Einstein tensor with a gradient covector field. Then, we prove that a Weyl manifold $W_n$ and a flat Weyl manifold $\tilde{W}_n$, which are in a conformal correspondence preserving the Einstein tensor are Einstein-Weyl manifolds. Moreover, we show that an isotropic Weyl manifold is an Einstein-Weyl manifold with zero scalar curvature and we obtain that a Weyl manifold $W_n$ and an isotropic Weyl manifold related by the conformal mapping preserving the Einstein tensor are Einstein-Weyl manifolds.
