How to get masses from extra dimensions
A generalized method of dimensional reduction, applicable to theories in curved space, is described. As in previous works by other authors, the extra dimensions are related to the manifold of a LieExpand

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.

Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theories
Abstract Yang-Mills theories with simple supersymmetry are constructed in 2, 4, 6, and 10 dimensions, and it is argued that these are essentially the only cases possible. The method of dimensionalExpand

Spontaneous breaking of supersymmetry through dimensional reduction
A general technique for deriving consistent theories with spontaneously broken supersymmetry and massive gravitinos is illustrated by exploiting the chiral invariance of N = 1 supergravity in fourExpand

Supersymmetry, Supergravity Theories and the Dual Spinor Model
We study the connection between the dual spinor model and supersymmetry. We show that in the low-energy region, the dual spinor model yields a supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with O(4) internalExpand

SU(4) Invariant Supergravity Theory
Abstract We present a new supergravity theory which is invariant under four separate local supersymmetry transformations. The action is invariant under global SU(4) transformation realized on theExpand

Dual Models for Non-Hadrons
The possibility of describing particles other than hadrons (leptons, photons, gauge bosons, gravitons, etc.) by a dual model is explored. The Virasoro-Shapiro model is studied first, interpreting theExpand

Spontaneously broken N = 8 supergravity
Abstract N = 8 supergravity in five dimensions is constructed by identifying local Sp(8) and global E(6) invariances and comparing with known theories. It is then used to obtain spontaneously brokenExpand

An Introduction to the Theory of Dual Models and Strings
The theory of a free string is first presented classically and quantum mechanically both in a covariant and a nonexplicitly covariant treatment. Then the concepts and techniques obtained from theExpand
