We discuss how the curvature and the strain density of an atomic lattice generate the quantization of graphene sheets as well as the dynamics of geometric quasiparticles propagating along the constant curvature/strain levels. The internal kinetic momentum of a Riemannian oriented surface (a vector field preserving the Gaussian curvature and the area) is determined.
