We perform a complete decoupling of the degrees of freedom of quadratic gravity and the generic f(R-mu nu sigma rho) theory about any one of their possible vacua, i.e. maximally symmetric solutions, and find the masses of the spin-2 and spin-0 modes in explicit forms.

Covariant symplectic structure and conserved charges of new massive gravity
Alkaç, Gökhan; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Department of Physics (2012)
We show that the symplectic current obtained from the boundary term, which arises in the first variation of a local diffeomorphism invariant action, is covariantly conserved for any gravity theory described by that action.Therefore, a Poincaré invariant two-form can be constructed on the phase space, which is shown to be closed without reference to a specific theory.Finally, we show that one can obtain a charge expression for gravity theories in various dimensions, which plays the role of the Abbott-Deser-T...
On soliton solutions of nonlinear sigma models of symmetric spaces
Karasu, Emine Ayşe (2001-10-30)
The inverse scattering transform technique of Belinskii-Zakharov for the integration of nonlinear sigma model equations is reviewed. N-soliton solutions of the principal chiral field equations axe given. The explicit two-complex pole soliton solutions of vacuum and electro-vacuum Ernst equations are constructed.
Massive higher derivative gravity theories
Güllü, İbrahim; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2011)
In this thesis massive higher derivative gravity theories are analyzed in some detail. One-particle scattering amplitude between two covariantly conserved sources mediated by a graviton exchange is found at tree-level in D dimensional (Anti)-de Sitter and flat spacetimes for the most general quadratic curvature theory augmented with the Pauli-Fierz mass term. From the amplitude expression, the Newtonian potential energies are calculated for various cases. Also, from this amplitude and the propagator structu...
Higher dimensional metrics of colliding gravitational plane waves
Gurses, M; Kahya, EO; Karasu, Atalay (2002-07-15)
We give a higher even dimensional extension of vacuum colliding gravitational plane waves with the combinations of collinear and noncollinear polarized four-dimensional metrics. The singularity structure of space-time depends on the parameters of the solution.
Bachian gravity in three dimensions
Tek, Mustafa; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2019)
Modified theories in 3-dimensions such as the topologically massive gravity (TMG), new massive gravity (NMG) or Born-Infeld extension of NMG arise from the vari-ations of diffeomorphism invariant actions; hence the resulting field equations aredivergence free. Namely, the rank two tensor defining the field equations satisfy aBianchi identity for all smooth metrics. However there are some recently constructedtheories that do not identically satisfy Bianchi identities for all metrics, but only forthe soluti...
