How to get masses from extra dimensions

- J. Scherk, J. Schwarz
- Physics
- 1979

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 Lie… Expand

Supergravity in theory in 11 dimensions

- E. Cremmer, B. Julia, J. Scherk
- Physics
- 19 June 1978

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

- L. Brink, J. Schwarz, J. Scherk
- Physics
- 28 March 1977

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 dimensional… Expand

Spontaneous breaking of supersymmetry through dimensional reduction

- J. Scherk, J. Schwarz
- Physics
- 12 March 1979

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 four… Expand

Supersymmetry, Supergravity Theories and the Dual Spinor Model

- F. Gliozzi, J. Scherk, D. Olive
- Physics
- 1989

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) internal… Expand

SU(4) Invariant Supergravity Theory

- E. Cremmer, J. Scherk, S. Ferrara
- Physics
- 27 March 1978

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 the… Expand

Dual Models for Non-Hadrons

- J. Scherk, J. Schwarz
- Physics
- 25 October 1974

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 the… Expand

Spontaneously broken N = 8 supergravity

- E. Cremmer, J. Scherk, J. Schwarz
- Physics
- 4 June 1979

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 broken… Expand

An Introduction to the Theory of Dual Models and Strings

- J. Scherk
- Physics
- 1975

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 the… Expand
