# A connection between linearized Gauss–Bonnet gravity and classical electrodynamics II: Complete dual formulation

@inproceedings{Baker2021ACB, title={A connection between linearized Gauss–Bonnet gravity and classical electrodynamics II: Complete dual formulation}, author={Mark Robert Baker}, year={2021} }

In a recent publication a procedure was developed which can be used to derive completely gauge invariant models from general Lagrangian densities with N order of derivatives and M rank of tensor potential. This procedure was then used to show that unique models follow for each order, namely classical electrodynamics for N = M = 1 and linearized Gauss-Bonnet gravity for N = M = 2. In this article, the nature of the connection between these two well explored physical models is further…
