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 massive action. Further extensions vanish in 4 dimensions. The general mass term is constructed in terms of a “deformed” determinant from which this property can clearly be seen. In addition, our formulation identifies nondynamical terms that appear in previous constructions and which do not… Expand
