Geometric Supergravity in d = 11 and Its Hidden Supergroup
Abstract In this paper we address two questions: the geometrical formulation of D = 11 supergravity and the derivation of the super Lie algebra it is based on. The solutions of the two problems areExpand

Special and quaternionic isometries: General couplings in N = 2 supergravity and the scalar potential☆
Abstract The general lagrangian for N = 2 matter-coupled supergravity is obtained, by gauging general isometries of quaternionic manifolds which can be coupled to supergravity. The resulting theoriesExpand

Stable de Sitter vacua from N=2 supergravity
We find extrema of the potential of matter couplings to = 2 supergravity that define de Sitter vacua and no tachyonic modes. There are three essential ingredients in our construction, namelyExpand

M-theory on AdS4 × M111: the complete Osp(2|4) × SU(3) × SU(2) spectrum from harmonic analysis☆
Abstract We reconsider the Kaluza-Klein compactifications of D = 11 supergravity on AdS4 × (G/H)7 manifolds that were classified in the eighties, in the modern perspective of AdS4/CFT3Expand

INVARIANCE OF ACTIONS, RHEONOMY AND THE NEW MINIMAL N=1 SUPERGRAVITY IN THE GROUP MANIFOLD APPROACH
Abstract A new definition of rheonomy is proposed based on Bianchi identities instead of field equation. For theories with auxiliary fields, the transformation rules are obtained in a completelyExpand

Twisted N = 2 supergravity as topological gravity in four dimensions
Abstract We show that the BRST quantum version of pure D = 4 N = 2 supergravity can be topologically twisted, to yield a formulation of topological gravity in four dimensions. The topological BRSTExpand

Gaugings and other supergravity tools of p-brane physics
In this series of lectures I present a review of the geometric structures of supergravity in diverse dimensions mostly relevant to p-brane physics and to pinpoint the correspondence between theExpand

SU(3)⊗SU(2)⊗U(1) from D=11 supergravity
In this paper we show that D = 11 supergravity admits an infinite discrete class of solutions having the phenomenological group SU(3) ⊗ SU(2) ⊗ U(1) as a symmetry of the internal space M7. TheseExpand
