    • Abstract


      The complete expression of the five-dimensional Einstein-Hilbert action as an expansion in fields in the Appelquist-Chodos parametrization of the Kaluza-Klein metric has been given in this paper. It is explicitly shown that a unitary gauge can be fixed in which in each of the charge sectors the vector and the scalar fields are absorbed as Goldstone modes leaving behind the Pauli-Fierz Lagrangian for massive charged spin-2 field.
