    For spin 5/2 one finds, however, uncontracted Riemann curvatures and one cannot couple consistently spin 5/2 to gravity. See F.A. Berends, B. de Wit, J.W. J.W. van Holten and P. van Nieuwenhuizen.Google Scholar

    Put g=0 and ϕ=−3 exp(-x) in ref(9). Replace in eq.(30) \(\frac{2}{9}A_\mu ^2\)by \(\frac{1}{{18}}A_\mu ^2\)and multiply in egs.(63,67) the term εabcμ \(\bar \psi _a \gamma _b \psi _c e^{ - 1}\)by 1/2. Then one reobtains the results of ref.(3).Google Scholar
