 Scalar curvature at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In mathematics, the scalar curvature of a surface is the familiar Gaussian curvature.
For higher-dimensional manifolds, it is double of the sum of all the sectional curvatures along all the 2-planes spanned by some orthonormal frame.
It is also the full trace of the Ricci curvature as well as of the curvature tensor.
