I'm interested in the derivation of the field equations of Einstein-Cartan theory of gravity starting from the Hilbert action, but I can't find a book or an article which explicitly derives the equation satisfied by the torsion field using the variation of the action with respect to the spin connection. Can you suggest me please something which could be of any help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you
