The cross-couplings among several massless spin-two fields (described in the free limit by a sum of Pauli–Fierz actions) in the presence of a massive Rarita–Schwinger field are investigated in the framework of the deformation theory based on local BRST cohomology. Under the hypotheses of locality, smoothness of the interactions in the coupling constant, Poincaré invariance, Lorentz covariance, and the preservation of the number of derivatives on each field, we prove that there are no consistent…
