Description

We hereby present a class of weakly non-local gravitational theories consistent at quantum level regardless of the spacetime dimension. These theories are unitary (ghost-free) and perturbatively super-renormalizable in any dimension. Moreover, we recently discover a simple extension of them that is finite at quantum level in even and odd dimension. Finally, we propose a super-renormalizable or finite theory for (super-)gravity coupled to gauge fields and matter laying the groundwork for a "finite standard model of particle physics" and/or a grand unified theory of all fundamental interactions (including a weakly nonlocal completion of 11-dimensional Supergravity/M-Theory.)
