Topologically Massive Gauge Theories

- S. Deser, R. Jackiw, S. Templeton
- Physics
- 1 May 1982

Gauge vector and gravity models are studied in three-dimensional space-time, where novel, gauge invariant, P and T odd terms of topological origin give rise to masses for the gauge fields. In the… Expand

Republication of: The dynamics of general relativity

- R. Arnowitt, S. Deser, C. Misner
- Physics
- 19 May 2004

This article—summarizing the authors’ then novel formulation of General Relativity—appeared as Chap. 7, pp. 227–264, in Gravitation: an introduction to current research, L. Witten, ed. (Wiley, New… Expand

Stability of gravity with a cosmological constant

The stability properties of Einstein theory with a cosmological constant Λ are investigated. For Λ > 0, stability is established for small fluctuations, about the de Sitter background, occurring… Expand

Three-dimensional massive gauge theories

- S. Deser, R. Jackiw, S. Templeton
- Physics
- 12 April 1982

Three-dimensional Yang-Mills and gravity theories augmented by gauge-invariant mass terms are analyzed. These topologically nontrivial additions profoundly alter the particle content of the models… Expand

Can gravitation have a finite range

- D. Boulware, S. Deser
- Physics
- 15 December 1972

No acceptable tensor gravitational theory with arbitrarily long but finite range exists. In linear approximation, the infinite-range limit is a scalar-tensor mixture implying an effective… Expand

Coordinate invariance and energy expressions in general relativity

- R. Arnowitt, S. Deser, C. W. Misner
- Physics
- 1 May 1961

The invariance of various definitions proposed for the energy and momentum of the gravitational field is examined. We use the boundary conditions that ${g}_{\ensuremath{\mu}\ensuremath{\nu}}$… Expand

Canonical variables for general relativity

- R. Arnowitt, S. Deser, C. W. Misner
- Physics
- 15 March 1960

The general theory of relativity is cast into normal Hamiltonian form in terms of two pairs of independent conjugate field variables. These variables are explicitly exhibited and obey ordinary… Expand

Self-interaction and gauge invariance

- S. Deser
- Physics
- 4 November 2004

A simple unified closed form derivation of the non-linearities of the Einstein, Yang-Mills and spinless (e.g. chiral) meson systems is given. For the first two, the non-linearities are required by… Expand

Energy in generic higher curvature gravity theories

We define and compute the energy of higher curvature gravity theories in arbitrary dimensions. Generically, these theories admit constant curvature vacua (even in the absence of an explicit… Expand

Duality transformations of Abelian and non-Abelian gauge fields

- S. Deser, C. Teitelboim
- Physics
- 15 March 1976

Duality transformations, i.e., rotations of electric and magnetic fields into each other, are implementable by a time-local generator for source-free Maxwell theory in an arbitrary spacetime metric.… Expand
