Abstract

Starting with some considerations on the minimal coupling principle between matter and torsion we illustrate a different kind of coupling on the ground of the motion equations. It is then possible to write down the Lagrangian of the torsionic contact interaction between two Dirac particles in the V - A standard form if at least one of the two fermions is massless and not necessarily both particles as in the case of minimal coupling. A complete identification of the torsionic and weak interaction could be possible however only by redefining the spin-torsion coupling constant.
