**no. of field equations and components or Riemann tensor??**

Someone was trying to explain to me about curvature in space. From what I got from what they were saying doesn't make sense to me. I'm not sure I understand what the number of components, N, of R

_{[tex]\alpha,\beta,\gamma,\delta[/tex]}when compared to

the number of field equations, M, implies about curvature (when i say compare i mean: N>M, N<M, N=M). I thought looking at just the Riemann tensor tells u about curvature. mYBE i Just didn't get what he was saying. Any help?
