  • It is argued that the diffeomorphisms of general relativity may be regarded as transformations that preserve the abelian group structure of the translation operators. Non-abelian geometries are introduced by extending Einstein's theory to the case where this abelian group is replaced by an arbitrarily given non-abelian group G. This generalization, which I call general relativity over G, is formulated systematically in the language of differential forms, by assuming at first that G is a… CONTINUE READING
