dc.description.abstract
This paper contains the introduction of the conformal curvature tensor now known as the Weyl tensor, which is widely used in geometry and gravity theory. Its classification by Petrov type has played a major role in, for example, studies of exact solutions and of gravitational radiation. The paper also introduces what is now called Weyl geometry, a generalization of Riemannian geometry which has been used in gravity theories alternative to general relativity, and contains ideas leading on to Weyl's concept of projective curvature.
