A Spin connection equation

  1. Jun 7, 2016 #1
    Dear All
    in the idea of gauging Poincare group i am trying to find the equation of motion of the spin connection w_mu^ab using Euler Lagrange equation. but it seems that i am not getting the same terms
    can i have a help. I know that this equation is equivalent to the torsionless condition, but i want to get it in the other way starting from the action and applying euler lagrange.
    thank you

    The appendix of the paper `Actions for Gravity ...' by Peldan may can help you.
