Abstract

We develop a new model of a spinning particle in Brans–Dicke spacetime using a metric-compatible connection with torsion. The particle's spin vector is shown to be Fermi-parallel (by the Levi-Civita connection) along its worldline (an autoparallel of the metric-compatible connection) when neglecting spin-curvature coupling.
