A bstractWe show that nonperturbative production of massive higher spin fields from vacuum will accompany the generation of non-vanishing macroscopic energy-momentum tensor correlators. This argument is based on the general causal field formalism, which gives a manifestly covariant description of higher spin particles without any reference to gauge redundancy. Our findings are direct consequence of the Poincaré covariance and anlayticity of the Green’s functions and independent of any detailed…

A bstractWe consider various decoupling limits of ghost-free massive gravity on (A)dS. The first is a decoupling limit on AdS space where the mass goes to zero while the AdS radius is held fixed.…

If the inflaton is a pseudoscalar, then it naturally interacts with gauge fields through the coupling ∝ Fμν μν. Through this coupling, the rolling inflaton produces quanta of the gauge field, that in…
