Teleparallel equivalent theory of (1+1)-dimensional gravity
A theory of (1+1)-dimensional gravity is constructed on the basis of the teleparallel equivalent of general relativity. The fundamental field variables are the tetrad fields eiμ and the gravity is attributed to the torsion. A dilatonic spherically symmetric exact solution of the gravitational field equations characterized by two parameters M and Q is derived. The energy associated with this solution is calculated using the two-dimensional gravitational energy-momentum formula. © 2010 Chinese Physics Society and IOP Publishing Ltd.
