Massive Spin-2 in Fradkin-Vasiliev formalism



Here, using massive spin-2 case as an example, we discuss the possibility to extend Fradkin-Vasiliev formalism, initially developed for investigation of massless higher spin fields interactions, to the interactions involving both massless and/or massive or partially massless fields.
