### Lovelock gravity

**(Lovelock_theory_of_gravity)**
(generalization of general relativity)

**Lovelock gravity** (**Lovelock theory of gravity**) is a mathematical
model of gravity that is a modification of general relativity (GR), and which
can differ from GR for spacetimes of dimension higher than
four. It was devised by David Lovelock in the 1970s. It is of
interest for theoretical exploration, and potentially of interest
given that physics finds it plausible that more than three space
dimensions might exist, those beyond the familiar being extremely
curved to the point that they are microscopic and not
perceived. Recent and improving observation of black holes
makes comparison of observation with experimental models of gravity
interesting.
