The teleparallel equivalent of Newton-Cartan gravity

Abstract:
We construct a notion of teleparallelization for Newton–Cartan theory, and show that the teleparallel equivalent of this theory is Newtonian gravity; furthermore, we show that this result is consistent with teleparallelization in general relativity, and can be obtained by null-reducing the teleparallel equivalent of a five-dimensional gravitational wave solution. This work thus strengthens substantially the connections between four theories: Newton–Cartan theory, Newtonian gravitation theory, general relativity, and teleparallel gravity.
