On Curvature Expansion of Higher Spin Gauge Theory

  title={On Curvature Expansion of Higher Spin Gauge Theory},
  author={Ergin Sezgin and Per Sundell},
We examine the curvature expansion of a the field equations of a four–dimensional higher spin gauge theory extension of anti-de Sitter gravity. The theory contains massless particles of spin 0, 2, 4, ... that arise in the symmetric product of two spin 0 singletons. We cast the curvature expansion into manifestly covariant form and elucidate the structure of the equations and observe a significant simplification. To be published in the proceedings of the Gürsey Memorial Conference II “M-theory… CONTINUE READING
