Main results of our recent investigations on five-dimensional scenarios of massive (bi-)gravity will be summarized in this article. In particular, we will show how to construct higher dimensional massive graviton terms from the characteristic equation of square matrix, which is a consequence of the Cayley-Hamilton theorem. Then, we will show whether massive graviton terms of five-dimensional massive (bi-)gravity behave as effective cosmological constants for a number of physical metrics…

Modified fermion tunneling from higher-dimensional charged AdS black hole in massive gravity

The tunneling behavior of fermions with half-integral spin from a higher dimensional charged anti-de Sitter (AdS) black hole in de Rham, Gabadadze and Tolley (dRGT) massive gravity is investigated



Higher dimensional nonlinear massive gravity

Inspired by a recent ghost-free nonlinear massive gravity in four-dimensional spacetime, we study its higher dimensional scenarios. As a result, we are able to show the constant-like behavior of

Bianchi type I expanding universe in Weyl-invariant massive gravity

We will study the cosmological evolutions of a Weyl-invariant de Rham, Gabadadze, and Tolley (dRGT) massive gravity theory with a general fiducial metric. In the unitary gauge, this model is

Resummation of massive gravity.

Four-dimensional covariant nonlinear theories of massive gravity are constructed which are ghost-free in the decoupling limit to all orders, and the Hamiltonian constraint is maintained at least up to and including quartic order in nonlinearities, hence excluding the possibility of the Boulware-Deser ghost up to this order.

Anisotropically expanding universe in massive gravity

We study the cosmological implications of a ghost-free nonlinear massive gravity theory with a cosmological constant. We find that the massive terms serve as an effective cosmological constant for a

On non-linear actions for massive gravity

In this work we present a systematic construction of the potentially ghost-free non-linear massive gravity actions. The most general action can be regarded as a 2-parameter deformation of a minimal

Phases of massive gravity

We systematically study the most general Lorentz-violating graviton mass invariant under three-dimensional Eucledian group. We find that at general values of mass parameters the massive graviton has

Generalized massive gravity in arbitrary dimensions and its Hamiltonian formulation

We extend the four-dimensional de Rham-Gabadadze-Tolley (dRGT) massive gravity model to a general scalar massive-tensor theory in arbitrary dimensions, coupling a dRGT massive graviton to multiple

Massive Gravity theories and limits of ghost-free bigravity models

A bstractWe construct a class of theories which extend New Massive Gravity to higher orders in curvature in any dimension. The lagrangians arise as limits of a new class of bimetric theories of


In the first part of this work we review the equations of motion for the brane presented in Friedmann–Robertson–Walker (FRW) form, when the bulk is five-dimensional (A)dS Black Hole. The spacelike
