On geodesic mappings with certain initial conditions. (English) Zbl 1240.53029
Summary: In this paper we studied geodesic mappings \(f\) between (pseudo-) Riemannian spaces \(V_n\) and \(\bar V_n\) with the initial condition \(\bar g(f(x_0)) =k \cdot g(x_0)\), where \(g\) and \(\bar g\) are the metrics of \(V_n\) and \(\bar V_n\).
We proved that if the Weyl tensor of the projective curvature is not vanishing at the point \(x_0\in V_n\) then \(f\) is homothetic.
