Chern-Simons gravity

(Chern-Simons general relativity, Chern-Simons modified general relativity)
(one type of modified general relativity)

Chern-Simons gravity (Chern-Simons general relativity or Chern-Simons modified general relativity) is a theory of gravity based upon general relativity (GR) and Chern-Simons theory, the latter which is a particular quantum field theory. It is one of many theoretical explorations of modifications and adjustments to GR, some of which can be tested, e.g., in observation of the effects of strong-field gravity.
