Einsteins' gravity with massive gravitons

  • Attila Mészáros


Graviton may, in principle, have a small non-zero mass. In this paper the relevant theory of the massive graviton with six polarisations is developed. The drastic impact of a non-zero mass of the graviton on cosmology is also illustrated.
