Algorithm for probing the unitarity of topologically massive models
International Journal of Theoretical Physics. New York: Springer/plenum Publishers, v. 44, n. 8, p. 1123-1139, 2005.
An uncomplicated and easy handling prescription that converts the task of checking the unitarity of massive, topologically massive, models into a straightforward algebraic exercise, is developed. The algorithm is used to test the unitarity of both topologically massive higher-derivative electromagnetism (TMHDE) and topologically massive higher-derivative gravity (TMHDG). The novel and amazing features of these effective field models are also discussed.
