# Metric-Affine Gauge theories of gravity: Foundations and new insights

@inproceedings{JimenezCano2022MetricAffineGT, title={Metric-Affine Gauge theories of gravity: Foundations and new insights}, author={Alejandro Jim'enez-Cano}, year={2022} }

This thesis covers several developments performed in metric-affine gravity. This alternative framework extends General Relativity by considering a more general connection than the one induced by the metric (i.e., arbitrary torsion and nonmetricity participate in the dynamics). We start by revising some mathematical aspects of the metric-affine framework, the way Lovelock and other invariants are extended to it and the construction of a gauge formalism. Then we focus on metric-affine pp-wave…
