Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study the proper curvature collineations of plane symmetric static spacetime in the f(R) theory of gravity. We have taken the metrics of both constant and non-constant curvature and formulated the curvature vector fields by using vanishing Lie derivative and direct integration technique. Here, the solutions of the Einstein’s field equations (EFEs) for both cases involve inverse curvature terms which may cause an increase in gravity that justifies the accelerated expansion of the universe. It turns out that curvature collineations become Killing vector fields and therefore, proper curvature collineations do not exists in both the cases.
