Galileon p-form theories

I will discuss the generalization to p-forms of the Galileon idea: to
construct the most general theory of an (abelian gauge invariant) p-form
with (strictly) second order field equations. Such theory have recently be
fully classified for space-time dimension strictly smaller than 12. The
covariantization of these theories will also be discussed.
