In condensed matter, crystal with disclination and dislocation has both curvature and torsion. I am looking for a reference in which path integral quantization of Dirac equation on manifold with curvature and torsion was discussed.

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

I wasn't aware of the name "Einstein-Cartan manifold" but if it is common usage, surely it wouldn't simply mean a manifold with nonzero torsion, surely it would be a manifold arising from the EC theory itself? – WetSavannaAnimal aka Rod Vance Sep 17 '13 at 8:15
