Remark About Hamiltonian Formulation of Non-Linear Massive Gravity in Stuckelberg Formalism

We perform the Hamiltonian analysis of the specific model of the non-linear massive gravity in Stuckelberg formalism where the square root structure is replaced by introducing auxiliary fields. We

IS BIMETRIC GRAVITY REALLY GHOST FREE

We perform the Hamiltonian analysis of the bimetric theory of gravity introduced in S. F. Hassan and R. A. Rosen, J. High Energy Phys.1202, 126 (2012), arXiv:1109.3515 [hep-th]. We carefully analyze

Covariant constraints of massive gravity in metric formulation

We propose a simple method to derive the constraints of the de Rham-Gabadadze-Tolley model in the Lagrangian formulation with the metric description, keeping the Lorentz covariance as far as

Chiral description of ghost-free massive gravity

We propose and study a new first order version of the ghost-free massive gravity. Instead of metrics or tetrads, it uses a connection together with Plebanski’s chiral 2-forms as fundamental variables,

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

Note about Hamiltonian structure of non-linear massive gravity

A bstractWe perform the Hamiltonian analysis of non-linear massive gravity action studied recently in arXiv:1106.3344 [hep-th]. We show that the Hamiltonian constraint is the second class constraint.

Resolving the ghost problem in nonlinear massive gravity.

It is shown that, in the entire two-parameter family of actions, the Hamiltonian constraint is maintained at the complete nonlinear level and this implies the absence of the pathological Boulware-Deser ghost to all orders.

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.

Strong interactions and exact solutions in nonlinear massive gravity

We investigate strong coupling effects in a covariant massive gravity model, which is a candidate for a ghost-free non-linear completion of Fierz-Pauli. We analyse the conditions to recover general

Ghost-free massive gravity with a general reference metric

A bstractTheories of massive gravity inevitably include an auxiliary reference metric. Generically, they also contain an inconsistency known as the Boulware-Deser ghost. Recently, a family of

Confirmation of the secondary constraint and absence of ghost in massive gravity and bimetric gravity

A bstractIn massive gravity and in bimetric theories of gravity, two constraints are needed to eliminate the two phase-space degrees of freedom of the Boulware-Deser ghost. For recently proposed

Generalization of the Fierz-Pauli action

We consider the Lagrangian of gravity covariantly amended by the mass and polynomial interaction terms with arbitrary coefficients and reinvestigate the consistency of such a theory in the decoupling
