Abstract

It is shown using a spacetime curvature classification and decomposition that for certain holonomy types of a spacetime, proper projective vector fields cannot exist. Existence is confirmed, by example, for the remaining holonomy types. In all except the most general holonomy type, a local uniqueness theorem for proper projective symmetry is established.
