Finite gravitational action for higher derivative and stringy gravities
Physical Review D, Particles and fields
We generalize the local surface counterterm prescription suggested in Einstein gravity for higher derivative (HD) and Weyl gravities. Explicitly, the surface counterterm is found for three- and five-dimensional HD gravities. As a result, the gravitational action for asymptotically AdS spaces is finite and gravitational energy-momentum tensor is well-defined. The holographic trace anomaly for d2 and d4 boundary (gauge) QFT dual to above HD gravity is calculated from gravitational energy-momentumdoi:10.1103/physrevd.62.064018 fatcat:jfoc3yml7fggjjyq7p5mgv6a7q
