Massive gravity in three dimensions.

- E. Bergshoeff, O. Hohm, P. Townsend
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 13 January 2009

A particular higher-derivative extension of the Einstein-Hilbert action in three spacetime dimensions is shown to be equivalent at the linearized level to the (unitary) Pauli-Fierz action for a… Expand

κ-Symmetry, Supersymmetry and Intersecting Branes

- E. Bergshoeff, R. Kallosh, T. Ort́ın, G. Papadopoulos
- Physics
- 7 May 1997

We present a new form of κ-symmetry transformations for D-branes in which the dependence on the Born-Infeld field strength is expressed as a relative rotation on the left- and right-moving fields… Expand

More on Massive 3D Gravity

- E. Bergshoeff, O. Hohm, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 8 May 2009

We explore the space of static solutions of the recently discovered three-dimensional 'new massive gravity' (NMG), allowing for either sign of the Einstein-Hilbert term and a cosmological term… Expand

Supermembranes and Eleven-Dimensional Supergravity

- E. Bergshoeff, E. Sezgin, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 30 April 1987

Abstract We construct an action for a supermembrane propagating in d = 1 supergravity background. Using the constraints of d = 11 curved superspace, we show that the action is invariant under… Expand

Super D-branes

- E. Bergshoeff, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 21 November 1996

We present a “kappa-symmetric” worldvolume action for all type II Dirichlet p-branes, 0≤p≤9, in a general type II supergravity background, including massive backgrounds in the IIA case. The p=9 case… Expand

Duality of type-II 7-branes and 8-branes

- E. Bergshoeff, M. D. Roo, M. Green, G. Papadopoulos, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 26 January 1996

We present a version of ten-dimensional IIA supergravity containing a 9-form potential for which the field equations are equivalent to those of the standard, massless, IIA theory for vanishing… Expand

Extended conformal supergravity

- E. Bergshoeff, M. D. Roo, B. Wit
- Physics
- 20 April 1981

Abstract We present the complete structure of extended conformal supergravity for N ⩽4. The relation with the graded algebra SU(2, 2| N ) and with the multiplet of currents is discussed. The N = 4… Expand

Minimal massive 3D gravity

- E. Bergshoeff, O. Hohm, Wout Merbis, Alasdair J. Routh, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 10 April 2014

We present an alternative to topologically massive gravity (TMG) with the same 'minimal' bulk properties; i.e. a single local degree of freedom that is realized as a massive graviton in linearization… Expand

New formulations of D = 10 supersymmetry and D8-O8 domain walls

- E. Bergshoeff, R. Kallosh, T. Ort́ın, D. Roest, A. Proeyen
- Physics
- 28 March 2001

We discuss a generalized form of IIA/IIB supergravity depending on all R-R potentials C-(p) (p = 0, 1,..., 9) as the effective field theory of type IIA/IIB superstring theory. For the IIA case we… Expand

The quartic effective action of the heterotic string

- E. Bergshoeff, M. D. Roo
- Physics
- 1 October 1989

We present the supersymmetric quartic effective action for the heterotic string which follows from the supersymmetrization of the Yang-Mills and Lorentz Chern-Simons forms. This includes all bosonic… Expand
