Abstract

We discuss the possibility of incorporating non-Riemannian parallel transport into Regge calculus. It is shown that every Regge lattice is locally equivalent to a space of constant curvature. Therefore well known-concepts of differential geometry imply the definition of an arbitrary linear affine connection on a Regge lattice.
