A theory of interacting fields of arbitrary spin. Generalizes Yang-Mills as a theory of spin-one, gravity as a theory of spin-two to fields of any spin.

I worked a lot with this kind of formulas :) It would be useful to recover the imaginary unit in $\exp$ and think of integration variables as taking real values. Then, upon appropriate normalization $ …

That looks weird but you have to impose the double trace constraint in order to have the right number of degrees of freedom. This is easy to see by going into light-cone and analyzing the equations of …

you may begin by reading the reviews on the subject, e.g. http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9611024 and more detailed http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0503128 What type of charges do you have in mind?

On the last question, I am not sure how good you are at the representation theory, but the following fact is true: take so(d,2) (we need so(3,2) for this work), use the conformal base, i.e. Lorentz ge …

First of all, let me say that there is nothing perculiar about 3d HS theories - I mean the Vasiliev equations look exactly the same as in any other dimension. The starting point in HS theory is to ga …

First of all there is no proof of this statement. It is just a general expectation that the more symmetries you have the more reason to expect better quantum properties. This works with SUSY, the more …
