    What role does the Lorentz Group play in the General Relativity ?

    Local or infinitesimal geometry is Euclidean, special relativity hols and Lorentz transfomation law is used. The finite geometry is non-Euclidean, special relativity does not hold and the tranfomation law are genrall covariant tranformations.
