An analysis of Born-Infeld determinantal gravity in Weitzenbock spacetime

14 Oct 2016 Fiorini Franco Vattuone Nicolas

The Born-Infeld theory of the gravitational field formulated in Weitzenbock spacetime is studied in detail. The action, constructed quadratically upon the torsion two-form, reduces to Einstein gravity in the low field limit where the Born-Infeld constant goes to infinity, and it is described by second order field equations for the vielbein field in $D$ spacetime dimensions...
