**Gökhan Alkaç** *Department of Physics, METU, Ankara*

02 July 2018, Monday, 14:00

Cavid Erginsoy Seminar Room, Physics Department, 3rd floor

**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.
