© 2020 Polish Scientific PublishersIn this work, we define a spinor covariant derivative for degenerate manifolds with 4-dimensions. To perform this, we have found the principal bundle by using a degenerate spin group. Then, we benefit from a covering map to establish a relationship between the local connection forms of principal bundles. After that, we define a covariant derivative on a degenerate spinor bundle which is an associated bundle.
