# Massive dual gravity in N spacetime dimensions

Abstract
We describe a field theory for “massive dual gravity” in N spacetime dimensions. We obtain a Lagrangian that gives the lowest order coupling of the field to the N -dimensional curl of its own energy-momentum tensor. We then briefly discuss classical solutions. Finally, we show the theory is the exact dual of the Ogievetsky-Polubarinov model generalized to any N.
