Hi, I've been studying extensions of general relativity with the torsion tensor and I have been wondering about the following fact: what is the physical meaning of the three indices of this tensor? That is, do these three indices represent some directions in space? (For example, the translation axis and the plane of rotation). Can you please help me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you
