TORSION AND SPINOR FIELDS: SOME COSMOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS

Luca Fabbri
Affiliation: 
University of Bologna
Abstract: 

I discuss the role of the torsion tensor in geometry in the case in which Dirac fields are considered, reviewing models in which the spin of particles is coupled to torsion: I will present some of the effects of the torsion-spin coupling for Dark Matter, neutrino oscillations and the cosmological constant problem.
