# Coordinate conditions and field equations for pure composite gravity

@inproceedings{Ottinger2021CoordinateCA, title={Coordinate conditions and field equations for pure composite gravity}, author={Hans Christian Ottinger}, year={2021} }

Whenever an alternative theory of gravity is formulated in a background Minkowski space, the conditions characterizing admissible coordinate systems, in which the alternative theory of gravity may be applied, play an important role. We here propose Lorentz covariant coordinate conditions for the composite theory of pure gravity developed from the Yang-Mills theory based on the Lorentz group, thereby completing this previously proposed higher derivative theory of gravity. The physically relevant…

Inclusion of the four-derivative terms ∫RμνRμν(−g)1/2 and ∫R2(−g)1/2 into the gravitational action gives a class of effectively multimass models of gravity. In addition to the usual massless…
