GARCIA-QUINTERO, C.; ORTIZ, A.  and  NIETO, J. A.. New reflections on higher dimensional linearized gravity. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2019, vol.65, n.5, pp.536-544.  Epub Apr 23, 2020. ISSN 0035-001X.

We make a number of remarks on linearized gravity with cosmological constant in any dimension, which, we argue, can be useful in a quantum gravity framework. For this purpose we assume that the background space-time metric corresponds to the de Sitter or anti-de Sitter space. Moreover, via the graviton mass and the cosmological constant correspondence, we make some interesting observations, putting special attention on the possible scenario of a graviton-tachyon connection. We compare our proposed formalism with the Novello and Neves approach.
