Two dimensional gravity with torsion is proved to be equivalent to special types of generalized 2d dilaton gravity. E.g. in one version, the dilaton field is shown to be expressible by the extra scalar curvature, constructed for an independent Lorentz connection corresponding to a nontrivial torsion. Elimination of that dilaton field yields an equivalent torsionless theory, nonpolynomial in curvature. These theories, although locally equivalent exhibit quite different global properties of the… CONTINUE READING
