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

General Kerr–NUT–AdS metrics in all dimensions
The Kerr–AdS metric in dimension D has cohomogeneity [D/2]; the metric components depend on the radial coordinate r and [D/2] latitude variables μi that are subject to the constraint ∑iμ2i = 1. WeExpand

Consistent Kaluza-Klein sphere reductions
We study the circumstances under which a Kaluza-Klein reduction on an n-sphere, with a massless truncation that includes all the Yang-Mills fields of $\mathrm{SO}(n+1),$ can be consistent at the fullExpand

The General Kerr-de Sitter metrics in all dimensions
We give the general Kerr–de Sitter metric in arbitrary space–time dimension D≥4, with the maximal number [(D−1)/2] of independent rotation parameters. We obtain the metric in Kerr–Schild form, whereExpand

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

Charged Rotating Black Holes in Four-Dimensional Gauged and Ungauged Supergravities
Abstract We study four-dimensional non-extremal charged rotating black holes in ungauged and gauged supergravity. In the ungauged case, we obtain rotating black holes with four independent charges,Expand

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

Gauged Six-Dimensional Supergravity from Massive Type IIA String Theory
We obtain the complete nonlinear Kaluza-Klein ansatz for the reduction of the bosonic sector of massive type IIA supergravity to the Romans F(4) gauged supergravity in six dimensions. The latterExpand

Symmetric potentials of gauged supergravities in diverse dimensions and Coulomb branch of gauge theories
A class of conformally flat and asymptotically anti--de Sitter geometries involving profiles of scalar fields is studied from the point of view of gauged supergravity. The scalars involved in theExpand

Rotating black holes in gauged supergravities: Thermodynamics, supersymmetric limits, topological solitons and time machines
We study the thermodynamics of the recently-discovered non-extremal charged rotating black holes of gauged supergravities in five, seven and four dimensions, obtaining energies, angular momenta andExpand
