Renormalization of Higher Derivative Quantum Gravity

- K. Stelle
- Physics
- 15 August 1977

Gravitational actions which include terms quadratic in the curvature tensor are renormalizable. The necessary Slavnov identities are derived from Becchi-Rouet-Stora (BRS) transformations of the… Expand

Multi-membrane solutions of D = 11 supergravity

Abstract We find exact solutions to the field equations of eleven-dimensional supergravity corresponding to stable multi-membrane configurations. Their holonomy group is given by the SO(8) subgroup… Expand

Classical gravity with higher derivatives

- K. Stelle
- Physics
- 1 April 1978

Inclusion of the four-derivative terms ∫RμνRμν(−g)1/2 and ∫R2(−g)1/2 into the gravitational action gives a class of effectively multimass models of gravity. In addition to the usual massless… Expand

Superstrings in D=10 from supermembranes in D=11

Abstract The type IIA superstring in ten dimensions is derived from the supermembrane in eleven dimensions by a simultaneous dimensional reduction of the world volume and the spacetime.

The Universe as a domain wall

- A. Lukas, B. Ovrut, K. Stelle, D. Waldram
- Physics
- 27 March 1998

It is shown that the effective five-dimensional theory of the strongly coupled heterotic string is a gauged version of N=1 five-dimensional supergravity with four-dimensional boundaries. For the… Expand

Heterotic M-theory in five dimensions

- A. Lukas, B. Ovrut, K. Stelle, D. Waldram
- Physics
- 5 June 1998

Abstract We derive the five-dimensional effective action of strongly coupled heterotic string theory for the complete (1,1) sector of the theory by performing a reduction, on a Calabi-Yau three-fold,… Expand

Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theories

- M. Sohnius, K. Stelle, P. West
- Physics
- 1980

A comprehensive discussion of the off-shell structure of super symmetric gauge theories is presented. We review various methods for finding the auxiliary fields which are necessary to permit a… Expand

Spontaneously broken de Sitter symmetry and the gravitational holonomy group

The local geometrical structure of general relativity is analyzed in detail from the standpoint of a formulation of gravity as a gauge theory of the de Sitter group SO(3,2). In order to reproduce the… Expand

Universal BPS structure of stationary supergravity solutions

- G. Bossard, H. Nicolai, K. Stelle
- Physics
- 25 February 2009

We study asymptotically flat stationary solutions of four-dimensional supergravity theories via the associated G/H ∗ pseudo-Riemannian non-linear sigma models in three spatial dimensions. The Noether… Expand

Area-preserving diffeomorphisms and higher-spin algebras

- E. Bergshoeff, M. Blencowe, K. Stelle
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1990

AbstractWe show that there exists a one-parameter family of infinite-dimensional algebras that includes the bosonicd=3 Fradkin-Vasiliev higher-spin algebra and the non-Euclidean version of the… Expand
