  author={Manuel Asorey and Lesław Rachwał and Ilya Shapiro and Wagno Cesar e Silva},
The conventional model of the gauge vector field is invariant under the local conformal symmetry only in the four-dimensional space (4d). Conformal generalization to an arbitrary dimension d is impossible even for the free theory, differently from scalar and fermion fields. We discuss how to overcome this restriction and eventually construct four vector conformal actions. One of these models is the particular case of the previously known conformal theory of n-forms and others are new, up to our… Expand


Conformal transformation in gravity
Abstract We construct and study the general action of the theory which is conformally equivalent to General Relativity with (or without) cosmological constant. The theory under consideration dependsExpand
Implications of Conformal Invariance in Field Theories for General Dimensions
Abstract The requirements of conformal invariance for two- and three-point functions for general dimension d on flat space are investigated. A compact group theoretic construction of the three-pointExpand
A conformally invariant gauge fixing equation and a field strength for the symmetric traceless field over four dimensional conformally flat Einstein spacetimes
The conformally invariant symmetric traceless field $A$ is considered on conformally flat Einstein space-time. If $d=4$ this field possess a scalar gauge invariance. In that case, we provide aExpand
Higher-dimensional black holes with a conformally invariant Maxwell source
We consider an action for an Abelian gauge field for which the density is given by a power of the Maxwell Lagrangian. In $d$ spacetime dimensions this action is shown to enjoy conformal invariance ifExpand
Conserved currents and the energy-momentum tensor in conformally invariant theories for general dimensions
Abstract The implications of conformal invariance, as relevant in quantum field theories at a renormalization group fixed point, are analysed with particular reference to results for correlationExpand
Auxiliary fields representation for modified gravity models
We consider tensor-multiscalar representations for several types of modified gravity actions. The first example is the theory with the action representing an arbitrary smooth function of the scalarExpand
Gauge invariance versus masslessness in de Sitter spaces
Abstract The connection between gauge invariance, masslessness and null cone propagation is a flat space property which does not persist even in constant curvature geometries. In particular, we showExpand
Universality and ambiguities of the conformal anomaly
The one-loop structure of the trace anomaly is investigated using different regularizations and renormalization schemes: dimensional, proper time and Pauli?Villars. The universality of this anomalyExpand
Conformally covariant differential operators: properties and applications
We discuss conformally covariant differential operators, which under local rescalings of the metric, , transform according to for some r if is of order s. It is shown that the flat space restrictionsExpand
Abstract We present the calculation of the one-loop β-function in extended conformal supergravities. N = 1, 2, 3, theories (free or coupled to the Einstein supergravities) are found to theExpand
