Abstract

We present a new unitary model of gravity in three dimensions containing a particular combination of terms of higher-order derivatives in the gravitational field. We discuss some properties of this model. In particular, we present the N = 1 supersymmetric extension and discuss the role of the auxiliary scalar in the presence of the higher-derivative terms.
