The Einstein Tensor and Its Generalizations
1.Unless otherwise specified, Latin indices run from 1 to n.
2.A comma denotes partial differentiation.
3.The summation convention is used throughout. The vertical bar denotes covariant differentiation.

6.If is any contravariant vector field, then we define the Riemann curvature tensor the Ricci tensor the curvature scalar R, and the Einstein tensor by and , respectively.
