  • In this Letter we give the gauge-independent divergent part of the one-loop correction to the effective action for the six-dimensional Einstein-Hilbert action, including a cosmological constant. We extend the methods of Barvinsky-Vilkovisky from four to higher dimensions, including the Vilkovisky-DeWitt correction, to obtain the unique counterterms for an arbitrary background field. All one-loop operators are given for {ital N} dimensions; however, due to the complexity of the Schwinger-DeWitt expansion, going beyond six dimensions to eight or ten will probably require restricting the background.
  • A conformal transformation is used to prove that a general theory with theaction /ital S/=..integral../ital d//sup /ital D//x ..sqrt../minus/g(/ital F/(/phi/,/ital R/)/minus/(epsilon/2)(/del//phi/)/sup 2/), where/ital F/(/phi/,/ital R/) is an arbitrary function of a scalar /phi/ and ascalar curvature /ital R/, is equivalent to a system described by theEinstein-Hilbert action plus scalar fields. This equivalence is a simpleextension of those in /ital R//sup 2/-gravity theory and the theory withnonminimal coupling. The case of /ital F/=/ital L/(/ital R/), where /ital L/(/ital R/) is anarbitrary polynomial of /ital R/, is discussed as an example.
  • It is shown that the Lagrangian reduction, in which solutions of equations of motion that do not involve time derivatives are used to eliminate variables, leads to results quite different from the standard Dirac treatment of the first-order form of the Einstein-Hilbert action when the equations of motion correspond to the first class constraints. A form of the first-order formulation of the Einstein-Hilbert action which is more suitable for the Dirac approach to constrained systems is presented. The Dirac and reduced approaches are compared and contrasted. This general discussion is illustrated by a simple model in which all constraints andmore » the gauge transformations which correspond to first class constraints are completely worked out using both methods to demonstrate explicitly their differences. These results show an inconsistency in the previous treatment of the first-order Einstein-Hilbert action which is likely responsible for problems with its canonical quantization.« less
  • By breaking the superconformal group it is possible to obtain an Einstein-Hilbert type action starting from one quadratic in the curvatures. The Newtonian gravitational constant is interpreted as a ratio of order parameters; at present low energies, these approach constant values of inherent dimension (much like the magnetization in a ferromagnet). Radiative corrections are forwarded as the mechanism responsible for S.S.B. 12 refs.
  • We find five-dimensional solutions to the equations of motion developed by Henriques. These equations are associated with the Einstein-Hilbert lagrangian as modified in order to model the low-energy limit of some superstring theories. We look at extensions of both Friedmann-Robertson-Walker and Kasner models and find a large variety of behavior for both vacuum and matter-filled cases. In the case of the Kasner extension we find that the generalized Einstein equations do not admit analytic power-law solutions.
