Abstract

Abstract: It is shown that the renormalized action for AdS gravity in even spacetime dimensions is equivalent “on shell” to a polynomial of the Weyl tensor, whose first nonvanishing term is proportional to W eyl2. Remarkably enough, the coupling of this last term coincides with the one that appears in Critical Gravity.
