Unformatted text preview: angian formalism. Apart from the assumption of locality of Sð1Þ which is relaxed in the S-matrix analysis (it would be interesting to see if this relaxation really gives new consistent solutions compared to the Lagrangian analysis), the Lagrangian analysis of Boulanger and Leclercq (2006) and Boulanger, Leclercq, and Sundell (2008) does not assume the equivalence principle and is based otherwise on a weaker form of Eq. (B8). That the spin-s fields are put on shell in the S-matrix analysis can be viewed as an advantage (no a priori field-theoretical realization for the spin-s fields). Based on the sole two assumptions (B2) and (B8), Porrati is able to prove that no massless high-spin particle can minimally couple to gravity in flat space in complete accordance with the previous results of Aragone and Deser (1979), Berends et al. (1979), Aragone and La Roche (1982), Boulanger and Leclercq (2006), and Metsaev (2006) and with Boulanger, Leclercq, and Sundell (2008). REFERENCES Aguilar, A. C., D. Binosi, and J.
