# Teleparallel Newton--Cartan gravity

@inproceedings{Schwartz2022TeleparallelNG, title={Teleparallel Newton--Cartan gravity}, author={Philip K Schwartz}, year={2022} }

We discuss a teleparallel version of Newton–Cartan gravity. This theory arises as a formal large-speed-of-light limit of the teleparallel equivalent of general relativity ( TEGR ). Thus, it provides a geometric formulation of the Newtonian limit of TEGR , similar to standard Newton–Cartan gravity being the Newtonian limit of general relativity. We show how by a certain gauge-ﬁxing the standard formulation of Newtonian gravity can be recovered.
