Hi all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I keep coming across the term "quadratic gravity" in various GR papers and don't entirely understand the concept as it doesn't seem to be explained anywhere. It seems to appear most frequently in the context of pp-waves. So I was hoping somebody could enlighten me as to what its all about

Thanks
