Minimal Massive 3D Gravity Unitarity Redux

Arvanitakis, Alex S ; Townsend, Paul Kingsley (2015-02-26)


A geometrical analysis of the bulk and anti-de Sitter boundary unitarity conditions of 3D “Minimal Massive Gravity” (MMG) (which evades the “bulk/boundary clash” of Topologically Massive Gravity) is used to extend and simplify previous results, showing that unitarity selects, up to equivalence, a connected region in parameter space. We also initiate the study of flat-space holography for MMG.
