In science:

However, the force fields are related with the components of the connection tortion tensor of a pseudoEuclidean space.
The basic principles of geometrization of the quantum mechanics
Hence it is clear that the tortion Sων Thus, the imbedding described in Sec.2 generates in k V4 a geometry with tortion and a nonzero covariant derivative of the metric tensor. n7.
The basic principles of geometrization of the quantum mechanics
Thus, the classical particle tra jectories in the potential fields specified with respect to a definite IF may be represented as geodesic lines lying on isotropic surfaces of some configurational space k V4 the connection of which has tortion, while the transference is nonmetric.
The basic principles of geometrization of the quantum mechanics
The geometry of the space k V4 has the distinctive property that the magnitude of the nonmetricity of the transfer and the tortion are determined by specifying the metric coefficient (k)goo under the condition that the mixed components (k)goi ≡ 0.
