Abstract

Two classes of non-Riemannian domain walls are obtained as distributional planar sources for the linearized Einstein-Cartan (EC) field equations of gravity. The first class represents spin polarized particles distributed on the non-Minkowskian side of the wall and an analogy with the ferromagnetic domains is displayed since the spin distributions are different on both sides of the walls. The other class represents a gravitational analog of Type I superconductor where Cartan torsion plays the role of the magnetic field. The “interior” solution is obtained by using matching conditions in EC-gravity and is matched to a torsionless vacuum in the last case.
