85. S. J. Szybka Chaotic selfsimilar wave maps coupled to gravity Phys. Rev. D, vol. 69, p. 084014 (2004). [abstract] [preprint] [journal]  Abstract: We continue our studies of spherically symmetric selfsimilar solutions in the SU(2) sigma model coupled to gravity. For some values of the coupling constant we present numerical evidence for the chaotic solution and the fractal threshold behavior. We explain this phenomenon in terms of horseshoelike dynamics and heteroclinic intersections.  86. G. Magnano, L. M. Sokolowski Nonlinear massive spintwo field generated by higher derivative gravity Annals Phys., vol. 306, pp. 136 (2003). [abstract] [preprint]  Abstract: We present a systematic exposition of the Lagrangian field theory for the massive spintwo field generated in higherderivative gravity. It has been noticed by various authors that this nonlinear field overcomes the well known inconsistency of the theory for a linear massive spintwo field interacting with Einstein's gravity. Starting from a Lagrangian quadratically depending on the Ricci tensor of the metric, we explore the two possible secondorder pictures usually called "(Helmholtz)Jordan frame" and "Einstein frame". In spite of their mathematical equivalence, the two frames have different structural properties: in Einstein frame, the spintwo field is minimally coupled to gravity, while in the other frame it is necessarily coupled to the curvature, without a separate kinetic term. We prove that the theory admits a unique and linearly stable ground state solution, and that the equations of motion are consistent, showing that these results can be obtained independently in either frame. The full equations of motion and the energymomentum tensor for the spintwo field in Einstein frame are given, and a simple but nontrivial exact solution to these equations is found. The comparison of the energymomentum tensors for the spintwo field in the two frames suggests that the Einstein frame is physically more acceptable. We point out that the energymomentum tensor generated by the Lagrangian of the linearized theory is unrelated to the corresponding tensor of the full theory. It is then argued that the ghostlike nature of the nonlinear spintwo field, found long ago in the linear approximation, may not be so harmful to classical stability issues, as has been expected.  87. Z. Golda, A.Woszczyna Dispersion of density waves in the early universe with positive cosmological constant Class. Quantum Grav., vol. 20, p. 277 (2003). [abstract] [preprint] [journal]  Abstract: Density perturbations in the flat (K=0) RobertsonWalker universe with radiation ($p=\epsilon/3$) and positive cosmological constant ($\Lambda>0$) are investigated. The phenomenon of anomalous dispersion of acoustic waves on $\Lambda$ is discussed.
