We review some properties of the Einstein-“Gauss-Bonnet” equations for gravity—also called the Einstein-Lanczos equations in five and six dimensions, and the Lovelock equations in higher dimensions. We illustrate, by means of simple Kaluza-Klein and brane cosmological models, some consequences of the quasi-linearity of these equations on the Cauchy problem… CONTINUE READING
