We discuss various aspects of dimensional reduction of gravity with the Einstein–Hilbert action supplemented by a lowest order deformation formed as the Riemann tensor raised to powers two, three or four. In the case of R we give an explicit expression, and discuss the possibility of extended coset symmetries, especially SL(n + 1,Z) for reduction on an n… (More)
