    what is the analogue of 'space is curved' in Quantum Field theory ??

    if in General Relativity the main issue is that 'space is curved' what is the equivalence of it in Quantum mechanics ?? , for example how can QFT describe the curvature of space ??

    In QFT, field strength tensors are (proportional to) curvature tensors of abstract, internal spaces.
