Cartan approach to Teleparallel Equivalent to General Relativity: A review
In previous works, questioning the mathematical nature of the connection in the translations gauge theory formulation of Teleparallel Equivalent to General Relativity (TEGR) Theory led us to propose


Teleparallel gravity equivalent of general relativity as a gauge theory: Translation or Cartan connection?
In this paper we question the status of TEGR, the Teleparallel Equivalent of General Relativity,as a gauge theory of translations. We observe that TEGR (in its usual translation-gauge view) does not
Geometric foundations of Cartan gauge gravity
We use the theory of Cartan connections to analyze the geometrical structures underpinning the gauge-theoretical descriptions of the gravitational interaction. According to the theory of Cartan
Teleparallel theory as a gauge theory of translations: Remarks and issues
The Teleparallel Equivalent to General Relativity (TEGR) is often presented as a gauge theory of translations, i.e., that uses \emph{only} the translation group $T_4 = (\setR^4, +)$ as its gauge
Teleparallel theories of gravity: illuminating a fully invariant approach
Teleparallel gravity and its popular generalization gravity can be formulated as fully invariant (under both coordinate transformations and local Lorentz transformations) theories of gravity. Several
Modified teleparallel theories of gravity
Teleparallel gravity is an alternative formulation of gravity which has the same field equations as General Relativity (GR), therefore, it also known as the Teleparallel equivalent of General
Conformally invariant teleparallel theories of gravity
We analyze the construction of conformal theories of gravity in the realm of teleparallel theories. We first present a family of conformal theories which are quadratic in the torsion tensor and are
Conformal teleparallel theories and Weyl geometry
Despite the fact that General Relativity (GR) has been very successful, many alternative theories of gravity have attracted the attention of a significant number of theoretical physicists. Among
MacDowell–Mansouri gravity and Cartan geometry
The geometric content of the MacDowell–Mansouri formulation of general relativity is best understood in terms of Cartan geometry. In particular, Cartan geometry gives clear geometric meaning to the
Symmetric teleparallel general relativity
General relativity can be presented in terms of other geometries besides Riemannian. In particular, teleparallel geometry (i.e., curvature vanishes) has some advantages, especially concerning
