Abstract

A generalization of General Relativity is studied. The standard Einstein-Hilbert action is considered in the Palatini formalism, where the connection and the metric are independent variables, and the connection is not symmetric. As a result of variation with respect to the metric Einstein equations are obtained. A variation with respect to the connection leads to an arbitrariness in the determination of connection, i.e. the presence of gauge invariance. Then a matter in a form of point particle which interacts with field of connection is introduced. Also the action is complemented by a kinetic term for field of the connection to avoid incompatible equation of motion. Thus after the variation procedures we obtain the Einstein equations, the geodesic equation and the Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism, where some components of the connection play the role of the electromagnetic potential. Thereby the electromagnetic potential is obtained from the geometry of space-time.
