Abstract

Ghost-free bimetric theories can be used to describe  gravitational interactions in the presence of an extra neutral massive
spin-2 field that can modify gravity in non-trivial ways. They also
provide a natural framework for a possible non-linear extension of
partially masslessness known to arise in linear Fierz-Pauli theory.
This talk will describe bimetric theories and a procedure that
identifies a unique bimetric action as a candidate for a nonlinear
partially massless theory. We then show that in the low curvature
limit, the candidate partial massless theory is related to Conformal
Gravity.
