Abstract: In this talk, we will first see that certain modified gravity theories naturally emerges when the existence of a holographic c-function is demanded. Then, we will use this idea to constrain the parameters in Born-Infeld Gravity theories and show that these theories generate an infinite number of higher derivative models admiting a c-function in a suitable expansion.
