Canonical connectivity and conservation laws in gravitation

  • R. F. PolishchukEmail author


The Riemann-canonical tetrad which defines, in the general case, six 2-directions of extreme values of the sectional Riemann curvature is introduced. It localizes the gravitational energy, defines the canonical 1-form of connectivity and canonical tetrad currents introduced by the author, which provide the conservation laws in the Einstein-Cartan theory.
