Title: Torsion and noninertial effects on a nonrelativistic Dirac particle

We investigate torsion and noninertial effects on a spin-1/2 quantum particle in the nonrelativistic limit of the Dirac equation. We consider the cosmic dislocation spacetime as a background and show that a rotating system of reference can be used out to distances which depend on the parameter related to the torsion of the defect. Therefore, we analyse torsion effects on the spectrum of energy of a nonrelativistic Dirac particle confined to a hard-wall potential in a Fermi–Walker reference frame. -- Highlights: •Torsion effects on a spin- 1/2 particle in a noninertial reference frame. •Fermi–Walker reference frame in the cosmic dislocation spacetime background. •Torsion and noninertial effects on the confinement to a hard-wall confining potential.
