Einstein-Cartan Theory as an Averaged Theory of Gravity

12 December 2012

Time: 4:30pm
Venue: Maths 103
The London Relativity and Cosmology Seminar
Juliane Behrend (Utrect)

In this talk I will show that the construction of a macroscopic theory of gravity for a corpuscular medium along the lines of classical electromagnetism naturally leads to an Einstein-Cartan theory. This theory is assumed to describe the universe on large scales.
