Aspects of massive spin-2 effective field theories

Abstract:

General relativity describes gravity in terms of an interacting massless spin-2 field—the graviton. This 100-year-old theory has been spectacularly successful in explaining observations. However, theoretical exploration and the cosmological constant problem motivate the study of alternative theories of gravity. Recently, there has been great progress in understanding theories that give the graviton a mass. This thesis considers several aspects of these massive spin-2 effective field theor...
