Axi-dilaton gravity in D >= 4 dimensional space-times with torsion

Cebeci, H
Dereli, T
We study models of axi-dilaton gravity in space-time geometries with torsion. We discuss conformal rescaling rules in both Riemannian and non-Riemannian formulations. We give static, spherically symmetric solutions and examine their singularity behavior.


All bulk and boundary unitary cubic curvature theories in three dimensions
Gullu, Ibrahim; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-01-26)
We construct all the bulk and boundary unitary cubic curvature parity invariant gravity theories in three dimensions in (anti)-de Sitter spaces. For bulk unitarity, our construction is based on the principle that the free theory of the cubic curvature theory reduces to one of the three known unitary theories which are the cosmological Einstein-Hilbert theory, the quadratic theory of the scalar curvature, or the new massive gravity (NMG). Bulk and boundary unitarity in NMG is in conflict; therefore, cubic th...
Higgs mechanism for new massive gravity and Weyl-invariant extensions of higher-derivative theories
Dengiz, Suat; Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-07-19)
New massive gravity provides a nonlinear extension of the Fierz-Pauli mass for gravitons in 2 + 1 dimensions. Here we construct a Weyl-invariant version of this theory. When the Weyl symmetry is broken, the graviton gets a mass in analogy with the Higgs mechanism. In (anti)-de Sitter backgrounds, the symmetry can be broken spontaneously, but in flat backgrounds radiative corrections, at the two-loop level, break the Weyl symmetry a la Coleman-Weinberg mechanism. We also construct the Weyl-invariant extensio...
Spin-spin interactions in massive gravity and higher derivative gravity theories
Gullu, Ibrahim; Tekin, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-20)
We show that, in the weak field limit, at large separations, in sharp contrast to General Relativity (GR), all massive gravity theories predict distance-dependent spin alignments for spinning objects. For all separations GR requires anti-parallel spin orientations with spins pointing along the line joining the sources. Hence total spin is minimized in GR. On the other hand; while massive gravity at small separations (m(g)r <= 1.62) gives the same result as GR, for large separations (m(g)r > 1.62) the spins ...
Chern-Simons modified general relativity: Conserved charges
Tekin, Bayram (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-01-01)
We construct the conserved charges (mass and angular momentum) of the Chern-Simons modified general relativity in asymptotically flat and anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetimes. Our definition is based on background Killing symmetries and reduces to the known expressions in the proper limits.
Combined search for supersymmetry with photons in proton-proton collisions at root s=13 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2020-02-01)
A combination of four searches for new physics involving signatures with at least one photon and large missing transverse momentum, motivated by generalized models of gauge-mediated supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking, is presented. All searches make use of proton-proton collision data at root s = 13 TeV, which were recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb(-1). Signatures with at least one photon and large missing transverse momentum are categorized ...
