The SO(8) supergravity
We present the derivation of the SO(8) supergravity theory by dimensional reduction of the supergravity theory in 11 dimensions to 4 dimensions. It has been found that the equations of motion areExpand

Supergravity in theory in 11 dimensions
We present the action and transformation laws of supergravity in 11 dimensions which is expected to be closely related to the O(8) theory in 4 dimensions after dimensional reduction.

N = 8 Supergravity
After the trip through superspace in 11 dimensions under the direction of S. Ferrara, 1 I am supposed to bring you back to ordinary 4 dimensional space-time by presenting to you the N = 8Expand

Dualisation of dualities
We analyse the global (rigid) symmetries that are realised on the bosonic fields of the various supergravity actions obtained from eleven-dimensional supergravity by toroidal compactificationExpand

The N = 8 supergravity theory. I. The lagrangian
Abstract The SO(8) supergravity action is constructed in closed form. A local SU(8) group as well as the exceptional group E7 are invariances of the equations of motion and of a new first orderExpand

Dualisation of dualities II: twisted self-duality of doubled fields and superdualities
We introduce a doubled formalism for the bosonic sector of the maximal supergravities, in which a Hodge dual potential is introduced for each bosonic field (except for the metric). The equations ofExpand

Higher dimensional origin of D = 3 coset symmetries
It is well known that the toroidal dimensional reduction of supergravities gives rise in three dimensions to theories whose bosonic sectors are described purely in terms of scalar degrees of freedom,Expand

Yang-Mills theories with local supersymmetry: Lagrangian, transformation laws and super-Higgs effect
We derive the lagrangian and transformation laws of the coupled Yang-Mills-matter-supergravity system for unextended n = 1 local supersymmetry. We study the super-Higgs effect and the normal HiggsExpand
