Abstract : In this article we classify four dimensional gradient Ricci solitons $(M, g, f)$ with half harmonic Weyl curvature and at most two distinct Ricci-eigenvalues at each point.
Indeed, we showed that, in a neighborhood $V$ of each point in some open dense subset of $M$,
$(V, g)$ is isometric to one of the following:

\medskip
{\rm (i)} an Einstein manifold.

\smallskip
{\rm (ii)} a domain in the Riemannian product $ (\mathbb{R}^2, g_0) \times (N, \tilde{g})$, where $g_0$ is the flat metric on $\mathbb{R}^2$ and $(N, \tilde{g})$ is a two dimensional Riemannian manifold of constant curvature $\lambda \neq 0$.

% And $f = \frac{\lambda}{2} s^2+C_1$, for a constant $C_1$.

\smallskip
{\rm (iii)} a domain in $\mathbb{R} \times W$ with the warped product metric $ ds^2 + h(s)^2 \tilde{g},$
where $\tilde{g}$ is a constant curved metric on a three dimensional manifold $W$.
