Mini-course on massive gravity by Kurt Hinterbichler (Perimeter Institute):

Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday from 14:15 to 15:45. (July 14-16, 2015)

The lectures will take place on Room 68 of Philosophenweg 12.


1) Massive spin-1 warm up: proca lagrangian, hamiltonian, quantization, interactions, stuckelberg trick, decoupling limit.

   Massive spin-2: fierz pauli lagrangian, hamiltonian, quantization, interactions.

2) Stuckelberg expansion of interactions, raising the cutoff, galileons in the decoupling limit.

3) Re-summation and dRGT theory, vielbein formulation, absence of Boulware Deser ghost, bi-gravity and multi-gravity.
