Fermions in a two-dimensional theory of gravity with dynamical metric and torsion

Abstract

We propose a new model which reduces a two-dimensional gravitational model with dynamical metric and torsion in a conformal gauge. We also find the instanton-like solutions and discuss their symmetry properties and eigenmodes.
