Generalised conformal higher-spin fields in curved backgrounds

The problem of constructing gauge-invariant actions for conformal higher-spin fields in curved backgrounds is known to be notoriously difficult. In this paper we present gauge-invariant models for

Dynamics of higher spin fields and tensorial space

The structure and the dynamics of massless higher spin fields in various dimensions are reviewed with an emphasis on conformally invariant higher spin fields. We show that in D = 3,4,6 and 10

Gauge and global symmetries of the candidate partially massless bimetric gravity

In this paper we investigate a particular ghost-free bimetric theory that exhibits the partially massless ( PM) symmetry at quadratic order. At this order the global SO(1,4) symmetry of the theory ...

Frame-like formulation for free mixed-symmetry bosonic massless higher-spin fields in AdS(d)

In this paper we discuss in detail the frame-like formulation of free bosonic massless higher-spin fields of general symmetry type in AdS(d), announced recently in hep-th/0311164, hep-th/0501108.

Nonlinear higher spin theories in various dimensions

In this article, an introduction to the nonlinear equations for completely symmetric bosonic higher spin gauge fields in anti de Sitter space of any dimension is provided. To make the presentation

Constraints and symmetries in theories of interacting spin-2 fields

The Hassan-Rosen bimetric theory describes two interacting spin-2 fields, one massless and one massive. In this thesis, a complete canonical analysis of this theory is performed in the metric formu

Partial masslessness and conformal gravity

We use conformal, but ghostful, Weyl gravity to study its ghost-free, second derivative, partially massless (PM) spin-2 component in the presence of Einstein gravity with positive cosmological

On Massive High Spin Particles in (A)dS

In this Letter we consider the problem of partial masslessness and unitarity in (A)dS using gauge invariant description of massive high spin particles. We show that for S = 2 and S = 3 cases such

Conformal operators for partially massless states

The AdS/CFT correspondence is explored for ``partially massless'' fields in AdS space (which have fewer helicity states than a massive field but more than a conventional massless field). Such fields
