Abstract : We view Weyl structures as generalizations of Riemannian metrics and study the critical points of geometric functionals which involve scalar curvature, defined on the space of Weyl structures on a closed 4-manifold. The main goal here is to provide a framework to analyze critical Weyl structures by defining functionals, discussing function spaces and writing down basic formulas for the equations of critical points.
