Non-Einstein source effects in massive gravity

Abstract

We exhibit novel effects (absent in GR) of sources in massive gravity. First, we show that removing its ghost mode forces a field-current identity: The metric’s trace is locally proportional to that of its stress tensor; a point source implies a metric singularity enhanced by the square of the graviton’s range. Second, exterior solutions acquire spatial… (More)
