We compute the one-loop quantum corrections to the potential of ghost-free massive gravity. We show how the mass of external matter fields contributes to the running of the cosmological constant, but does not change the ghost-free structure of the massive gravity potential at one-loop. When considering gravitons running in the loops, we show how the structure of the potential gets destabilized at the quantum level, but in a way which would never involve a ghost with a mass smaller than the…

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.

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.
