N = 2 Supergravity in D = 4, 5, 6 Dimensions Paperback - 2020

by Edoardo Lauria; Antoine Van Proeyen


From the rear cover

This graduate-level primer presents a tutorial introduction to and overview of N = 2 supergravity theories - with 8 real supercharges and in 4, 5 and 6 dimensions.

First, the construction of such theories by superconformal methods is explained in detail, and relevant special geometries are obtained and characterized.

Following, the relation between the supergravity theories in the various dimensions is discussed. This leads eventually to the concept of very special geometry and quaternionic-Khler manifolds.

This concise text is a valuable resource for graduate students and young researchers wishing to enter the field quickly and efficiently.

About the author

Edoardo Lauria started his studies in Physics in Turin (Italy) and has concluded his Ph.D. at KU Leuven (Belgium) in 2018. His doctoral thesis has been published in the Springer Thesis series with the title "Points, Lines, and Surfaces at Criticality". Currently, he holds a postdoctoral research position at Durham University and his research mainly focuses on conformal field theories.

Antoine Van Proeyen is professor emeritus at KU Leuven, Belgium. He started his research on supergravity in 1979, soon after his Ph.D. He has been involved in the construction of various supergravity theories, resulting special geometries, relations to string theory and applications to phenomenology and cosmology. He is co-author of the textbook 'Supergravity' with prof. Dan Freedman and he published 150 research papers with an h impact factor over 50.
