E10 and a small tension expansion of m theory.
A formal "small tension" expansion of D=11 supergravity near a spacelike singularity is shown to be equivalent, at least up to 30th order in height, to a null geodesic motion in the
N = 8 supergravity
Cosmological Billiards
It is shown in detail that the dynamics of the Einstein-dilaton-p-form system in the vicinity of a spacelike singularity can be asymptotically described, at a generic spatial point, as a billiard
Gauged Supergravities, Tensor Hierarchies, and M-Theory
Deformations of maximal supergravity theories induced by gauging non-abelian subgroups of the duality group reveal the presence of charged M-theory degrees of freedom that are not necessarily
Conformal and Quasiconformal Realizations¶of Exceptional Lie Groups
Abstract: We present a nonlinear realization of E8(8) on a space of 57 dimensions, which is quasiconformal in the sense that it leaves invariant a suitably defined “light cone” in ℝ57. This
Introduction to Supersymmetry and Supergravity
Over the past years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in “public interest” in supersymmetry and super gravity. This interest cannot as yet be based on any solid experimental facts, but it has
