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 the string-inspired Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet model and show that both its flat and anti-de Sitter vacua are stable.

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...
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.
Energy associated with the Gibbons-Maeda dilaton spacetime
Aydogdu, Oktay; Salti, Mustafa; Korunur, Murat; Acikgoz, Irfan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-12-01)
In order to obtain energy and momentum (due to matter and fields including gravitation) distributions of the Gibbons-Maeda dilaton spacetime, we use the Moller energy-momentum prescription both in Einstein"s theory of general relativity and teleparallel gravity. We find the same energy distribution for a given metric in both of these different gravitation theories. Under two limits, we also calculate energy associated with two other models such as the Garfinkle-Horowitz-Strominger dilaton spacetime and the ...
Spectra, vacua, and the unitarity of Lovelock gravity in D-dimensional AdS spacetimes
Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Gullu, Ibrahim; Tekin, Bayram (2012-08-24)
We explicitly confirm the expectation that generic Lovelock gravity in D dimensions has a unitary massless spin-2 excitation around any one of its constant curvature vacua just like the cosmological Einstein gravity. The propagator of the theory reduces to that of Einstein's gravity, but scattering amplitudes must be computed with an effective Newton's constant which we provide. Tree-level unitarity imposes a single constraint on the parameters of the theory yielding a wide range of unitary region. As an ex...
Finite mass gravitating Yang monopoles
CEBECİ, HAKAN; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-12-01)
We show that gravity cures the infrared divergence of the Yang monopole when a proper definition of conserved quantities in curved backgrounds is used, i.e. the gravitating Yang monopole in cosmological Einstein theory has a finite mass in generic even dimensions (including time). In addition, we find exact Yang-monopole type solutions in the cosmological Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet-Yang-Mills theory and briefly discuss their properties.
