Massive gravity in ads and minkowski backgrounds

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    I review some interesting features of massive gravity in two maximally symmetric backgrounds: Anti de Sitter space and Minkowski space. While massive gravity in AdS can be seen as a spontaneously broken, UV safe theory, no such interpretation exists yet in the flat-space case. Here, I point out the problems encountered in trying to find such completion, and possible mechanisms to overcome them.
