Energy and angular momentum in generic F (Riemann) theories

Senturk, Cetin
Sisman, Tahsin Cagri
Tekin, Bayram
We construct the conserved charge of generic gravity theories built on arbitrary contractions of the Riemann tensor (but not on its derivatives) for asymptotically (anti)-de Sitter spacetimes. Our construction is a generalization of the Abbott-Deser-Tekin charges of linear and quadratic gravity theories in cosmological backgrounds. As an explicit example we find the energy and angular momentum of the Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli black hole in the (2 + 1)-dimensional Born-Infeld gravity. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.86.124030


Energy in generic higher curvature gravity theories
Deser, S; Tekin, Bayram (2003-04-15)
We define and compute the energy of higher curvature gravity theories in arbitrary dimensions. Generically, these theories admit constant curvature vacua (even in the absence of an explicit cosmological constant), and asymptotically constant curvature solutions with nontrivial energy properties. For concreteness, we study quadratic curvature models in detail. Among them, the one whose action is the square of the traceless Ricci tensor always has zero energy, unlike conformal (Weyl) gravity. We also study th...
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.
Energy in topologically massive gravity
Deser, S; Tekin, Bayram (IOP Publishing, 2003-11-07)
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.
Conserved charges in extended theories of gravity
Adami, Hamed; Setare, Mohammad Reza; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-20)
We give a detailed review of construction of conserved quantities in extended theories of gravity for asymptotically maximally symmetric spacetimes and carry out explicit computations for various solutions. Our construction is based on the Killing charge method, and a proper discussion of the conserved charges of extended gravity theories with this method requires studying the corresponding charges in Einstein's theory with or without a cosmological constant. Hence we study the ADM charges (in the asymptoti...
Energy in Reboucas-Tiomno-Korotkii-Obukhov and Godel-type space-times in Bergmann-Thomson's formulations
Aydogdu, O; Salti, M; Korunur, M (2005-12-01)
We calculate the total energy (the matter plus fields) of the universe considering Bergmann-Thomson's energy-momentum formulation in both Einstein's theory of general relativity and tele-parallel gravity on two different space-times; namely Reboucas-Tiomno-Korotkii-Obukhov and the Godel-type metrics. We also compute some kinematical quantities for these space-times and find that these space-times have shear-free expansion and non-vanishing four-acceleration and vorticity. Different approximations of the Ber...
