Abstract The aim of this paper is to find higher order geometrical corrections to the Einstein–Hilbert action that can lead only to second order equations of motion. The metric formalism is used, and static spherically-symmetric and Friedmann–Lemaître space-times are considered, in four dimensions. The Fulling, King, Wybourne and Cummings FKWC basis is introduced in order to consider all of the possible invariant scalars, and both polynomial and non-polynomial gravities are investigated.
