Topologically massive higher-spin gravity

Abstract: In the last couple of decades a theory has been developed to consider interacting theories of higher-spin fields which is known as higher-spin gravity. This theory has received a lot of attention recently in the context of AdS-CFT correspondence. The theory in various dimensions is conjectured to be dual to well known conformal field theories in the boundary. In the light of this recent development, we will discuss the higher-spin analogue of topologically massive gravity in three dimensions, which we call topologically massive higher-spin gravity. We will discuss various semi classical as well as quantum results of the theory.
