Summary:
"This book provides up-to-date information on metric (i.e. Killing, homothetic and conformal), connection (i.e. affine, conformal and projective), curvature collineations and curvature inheritance symmetries. It is the first-ever attempt to present a comprehensive account of a very large number of papers on symmetries of spacetimes and Riemannian manifolds. An attempt has been made to present the Lie group/algebra
