Energy in topologically massive gravity

Deser, S
Tekin, Bayram
We define conserved gravitational charges in cosmologically extended topologically massive gravity, exhibit them in surface integral form about their de Sitter or flat vacua and verify their correctness in terms of two basic types of solution.


Mass and angular momentum of asymptotically AdS or flat solutions in the topologically massive gravity
Olmez, S; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Tekin, Bayram (IOP Publishing, 2005-10-21)
We study the conserved charges of supersymmetric solutions in the topologically massive gravity theory for both asymptotically flat and constant curvature geometries.
Gravitational interactions in 2+1 dimensions
Dereli, Tekin; Tucker, Robin W. (IOP Publishing, 1988-7-1)
Modifications to Einstein's vacuum equations for gravitation in 2+1 dimensions are studied. The addition of the Schouten-Eisenhart 2-forms to the field equations admits gravitational wave solutions although no non-trivial static rotationally symmetric metrics exist. Higher-order derivative models for the metric are discussed together with a 2+1 Brans-Dicke theory. The latter is solved for a static metric exhibiting singularities.
All unitary cubic curvature gravities in D dimensions
Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Gullu, Ibrahim; Tekin, Bayram (IOP Publishing, 2011-10-07)
We construct all the unitary cubic curvature gravity theories built on the contractions of the Riemann tensor in D-dimensional (anti)-de Sitter spacetimes. Our construction is based on finding the equivalent quadratic action for the general cubic curvature theory and imposing ghost and tachyon freedom, which greatly simplifies the highly complicated problem of finding the propagator of cubic curvature theories in constant curvature backgrounds. To carry out the procedure we have also classified all the unit...
Radiation in Yang-Mills Formulation of Gravity and a Generalized pp-Wave Metric
Başkal, Sibel (Oxford University Press (OUP), 1999-10-1)
Variational methods applied to a quadratic Yang-Mills-type Lagrangian yield two sets of relations interpreted as the field equations and the energy-momentum tensor for the gravitational field. A covariant condition is imposed on the energy-momentum tensor in order for it to represent the radiation field. A generalized pp-wave metric is found to simultaneously satisfy both the field equations and the radiation condition. The result is compared with that of Lichnerowicz.
DERELI, TEKİN; Üçoluk, Göktürk (IOP Publishing, 1990-07-01)
The Kaluza-Klein reduction of a generalised theory of gravity in D=5 dimensions is given. The form of the interactions among the gravitational, electromagnetic and massless scalar fields in four dimensional spacetime is exhibited.
