[114][Eq.
167]
is
the
fully
covariant Ricci
tensor
in
a
form
resulting
from contraction of the
Riemann
tensor,
written
as
in
Einstein and Grossmann
1913 (Doc.
13),
p.
36, equation
(44).
[115]Following a
procedure
used three
years
later
in
Einstein
1915c,
pp.
781782,
the Ricci
tensor
is
divided into
two parts,
[eq.
168]
and
[eq.
169].
Under unimodular
transformations,
G
transforms
as a
scalar.
Thus,
[eq.
168]
transforms
as a
tensor,
and since
the
sum
of
[eq.
168]
and
[eq.
169]
is
a
generally
covariant
tensor,
Einstein's
conjectured gravitation
tensor
[eq. 169]
also transforms
tensorially
under unimodular transformations.
[116]Einstein
expands
the
first
term
of
[eq.
169] to yield
[eq.
172], using
the coordinate
condition
[eq.
171],
which
was
also used later
in
Einstein
1915c,
p.
786.
He
expands
the
sec
ond
part
of
[eq.
169]
in
[eq. 173]
to
arrive
at
a
final
combined
expression
[eq.
174]
for his
gravitation tensor
[eq.
169]. [Eq. 174]
satisfies condition

discussed
in
the editorial
note,
"Einstein's Research
Notes
on a
Generalized
Theory
of
Relativity."
