Novel symmetry of nonEinsteinian gravity in two-dimensions
The integrability of R2-gravity with torsion in two dimensions is traced to an ultralocal dynamical symmetry of constraints and momenta in Hamiltonian phase space. It may be interpreted as a quadratically deformed iso(2,1)-algebra with the deformation consisting of the Casimir operators of the undeformed algebra. The locally conserved quantity encountered in the explicit solution is identified as an element of the center of this algebra. Specific contractions of the algebra are related to specific limits of the explicit solutions of this model.
