I would like to write the HIlbert-Einstein action using tetrad formalism.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have seen in a paper that the lagrangian is the contraction between a levi civita tensor, against two veilbeins and a two form curvature.

The problem is that i can' t prove that this is the same as the scalar curvature moltiplied by the determinant of the metric.

Could you help me? I am sure of the result, but i can' prove it
