On the equivalence between the logarithmic and nonlinear Schwarzschild action in EinsteinGaussBonnet gravityComments: 13 pages; v2: minor improvements, references added
The nonlinear Schwarzschild action in EinsteinGaussBonnet gravity theory is considered to be a simplifying influence on the Hamiltonian. We determine the equivalence between the logarithmic and nonlinear Schwarzschild action in EinsteinGaussBonnet gravity theory.

On the role of the Higgs in the deterministic quantum theoryComments: 14 pages, 5 figures. v2: minor improvements
We study the duality between the Higgs model with the nonperturbative gauge/gravity duality and the deterministic quantum theory. We show that the Higgs model is in fact a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry. We also demonstrate that the duality between the deterministic quantum theory and the Higgs model is broken in the presence of a nonzero gauge/gravity coupling. We discuss how this would apply to the duality between the Higgs model and the nonperturbative gauge/gravity duality. We therefore conclude that the Higgs model is not a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry. We also point out that the Higgs model is a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry.
