I'm looking for a derivation of the Einstein-Cartan Equations from varying the Einstein-Hilbert Action. I've looked around the internet but can't seem to find one, so if anyone knows of a pdf or book reference that goes through the derivation, that would help a lot. The wikipedia page for Einstein-Cartan Theory mentions the equations being derived by varying the Einstein-Hilbert Action with respect to the Torsion Tensor, but does not go into any detail.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
