My professor asks, "Double check a formula that specifies how Riemann tensor is proportional to a curvature scalar." in our homework.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The closet thing I can find is the relation between the ricci tensor and the curvature scalar in einstein's field equation for empty space.
