Title: Multifield Galileons and higher codimension branes

Abstract

We studied a multi-field generalizations of the galileon - a popular idea of how to modify gravity to account for the acceleration of the universe. We derived an extremely restrictive theory of multiple galileon fields, and explored some properties of this theory, including proving a general non-renormalization theorem: multi-field galileons are not renormalized quantum mechanically to any loop in perturbation theory.
