TL;DR: In this paper, it was shown that a general relativistic space-time with covariant-constant energy-momentum tensors is Ricci symmetric, and two particular types of such general space-times were considered and determined.

TL;DR: The theory of manifolds with affine connection has been studied in this paper, where the authors deal with the theory of conformal, geodesic, and projective mappings and transformations.
Abstract: The monograph deals with the theory of conformal, geodesic, holomorphically projective, F-planar and others mappings and transformations of manifolds with affine connection, Riemannian, Kahler and Riemann-Finsler manifolds. Concretely, the monograph treats the following: basic concepts of topological spaces, the theory of manifolds with affine connection (particularly, the problem of semigeodesic coordinates), Riemannian and Kahler manifolds (reconstruction of a metric, equidistant spaces, variational problems in Riemannian spaces, SO(3)-structure as a model of statistical manifolds, decomposition of tensors), the theory of differentiable mappings and transformations of manifolds (the problem of metrization of affine connection, harmonic diffeomorphisms), conformal mappings and transformations (especially conformal mappings onto Einstein spaces, conformal transformations of Riemannian manifolds), geodesic mappings (GM; especially geodesic equivalence of a manifold with affine connection to an equiaffine manifold), GM onto Riemannian manifolds, GM between Riemannian manifolds (GM of equidistant spaces, GM of Vn(B) spaces, its field of symmetric linear endomorphisms), GM of special spaces, particularly Einstein, Kahler, pseudosymmetric manifolds and their generalizations, global geodesic mappings and deformations, GM between Riemannian manifolds of different dimensions, global GM, geodesic deformations of hypersurfaces in Riemannian spaces, some applications of GM to general relativity, namely three invariant classes of the Einstein equations and geodesic mappings, F-planar mappings of spaces with affine connection, holomorphically projective mappings (HPM) of Kahler manifolds (fundamental equations of HPM, HPM of special Kahler manifolds, HPM of parabolic Kahler manifolds, almost geodesic mappings, which generalize geodesic mappings, Riemann-Finsler spaces and their geodesic mappings, geodesic mappings of Berwald spaces onto Riemannian spaces.

TL;DR: In this article, the curvature tensors of Ricci solitons in a perfect fluid spacetime are described in terms of different curvatures tensors and conditions for the Ricci Solitons to be steady, expanding or shrinking are also given.
Abstract: Geometrical aspects of a perfect fluid spacetime are described in terms of different curvature tensors and η-Ricci and η-Einstein solitons in a perfect fluid spacetime are determined. Conditions for the Ricci soliton to be steady, expanding or shrinking are also given. In a particular case when the potential vector field ξ of the soliton is of gradient type, ξ:= grad(f), we derive a Poisson equation from the soliton equation.

Abstract: Geometrical aspects of a perfect fluid spacetime are described in terms of different curvature tensors and $\eta$-Ricci and $\eta$-Einstein solitons in a perfect fluid spacetime are determined. Conditions for the Ricci soliton to be steady, expanding or shrinking are also given. In a particular case when the potential vector field $\xi$ of the soliton is of gradient type, $\xi:=grad(f)$, we derive a Poisson equation from the soliton equation.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors introduced spacetimes with semisymmetric energy-momentum tensors and characterized the perfect fluid spacetime with semi-measure tensors.
Abstract: The object of the present paper is to introduce spacetimes with semisymmetric energy-momentum tensor. At first we consider the relation R(X,Y)⋅T=0, that is, the energy-momentum tensor T of type (0,2) is semisymmetric. It is shown that in a general relativistic spacetime if the energy-momentum tensor is semisymmetric, then the spacetime is also Ricci semisymmetric and the converse is also true. Next we characterize the perfect fluid spacetime with semisymmetric energy-momentum tensor. Then, we consider conformally flat spacetime with semisymmetric energy-momentum tensor. Finally, we cited some examples of spacetimes admitting semisymmetric energy-momentum tensor.

TL;DR: In this paper, a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime is considered, and it is shown that the energy density and the isotropic pressure are not constants.
Abstract: We consider a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime. At first we show that a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime can be taken as a model of the perfect fluid spacetime in general relativity and cosmology. Next we show that if in a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime the matter distribution is perfect fluid whose velocity vector is the vector field corresponding to 1-form B of the spacetime, the energy density and the isotropic pressure are not constants. We also show that a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime is the Robertson-Walker spacetime. Finally we give an example of a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime with non-zero non-constant scalar curvature admitting a concircular vector field.
