**Metric Relativity and the Dynamical Bridge: highlights of Riemannian geometry in physics**

by Mario Novello, Eduardo Bittencourt

**Publisher**: arXiv 2015**Number of pages**: 121

**Description**:

We present an overview of recent developments concerning modifications of the geometry of space-time to describe various physical processes of interactions among classical and quantum configurations. We concentrate in two main lines of research: the Metric Relativity and the Dynamical Bridge.
