Covariant Differential Identities and Conservation Laws in Metric-Torsion Theories of Gravitation

Section: Fields and elementary particles
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: The general manifestly generally covariant formalism for constructing the conservation laws and the conserved quantities in arbitrary metric-torsion theories of gravitation, which recently has been elaborated by the authors, is presented.

Key words: diffeomorphic invariance, manifest covariance, differential identities, conservation laws, stress-energy-momentum tensors, spin tensors, metric-torsion theories, gravity, Riemann–Cartan geometry
