The object of the present paper is to study a type of Riemannian manifolds called generalized recurrent manifolds. We have constructed two concrete examples of such a manifold whose scalar curvature is non-zero non-constant. Some other properties have been considered. Among others it is shown that on a generalized recurrent manifold with constant scalar curvature, Weyl-semisymmetry and semisymmetry are equivalent. Sufficient condition for a generalized recurrent manifold to be a special quasi Einstein manifold is obtained. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
