N = 2 supergravity and N = 2 super Yang-Mills theory on general scalar manifolds: Symplectic covariance gaugings and the momentum map
Abstract The general form of N = 2 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector multiplets and hypermultiplets, with a generic gauging of the scalar manifold isometries is given. ThisExpand

R-R scalars, U-duality and solvable Lie algebras☆
We consider the group theoretical properties of R-R scalars of string theories in the low-energy supergravity limit and relate them to the solvable Lie subalgebra Gs ⊂ U of the U-duality algebra thatExpand

3D superconformal theories from Sasakian seven-manifolds: new non-trivial evidences for AdS4/CFT3
Abstract In this paper we discuss candidate superconformal N =2 gauge theories that realize the AdS/CFT correspondence with M-theory compactified on the homogeneous Sasakian 7 -manifolds M 7 thatExpand

General matter coupled N=2 supergravity
Abstract The general form of N = 2 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector multiplets and hypermultiplets with a generic gauging of the scalar manifold isometries is given. This extendsExpand

Lectures on special Kahler geometry and electric - magnetic duality rotations
In these lecture I review the general structure of electric—magnetic duality rotations in every even space—time dimension. In four dimensions, which is my main concern, I discuss the general issue ofExpand

ALE MANIFOLDS AND CONFORMAL FIELD THEORIES
We address the problem of constructing the family of (4,4) theories associated with the σ model on a parametrized family ℳζ of asymptotically locally Euclidean (ALE) manifolds. We rely on the ADEExpand

Integrable Scalar Cosmologies I. Foundations and links with String Theory
Abstract We build a number of integrable one-scalar spatially flat cosmologies, which play a natural role in inflationary scenarios, examine their behavior in several cases and draw from them someExpand

The 0-brane action in a general D=4 supergravity background
We begin by presenting the superparticle action in the background of = 2, D = 4 supergravity coupled to n vector multiplets interacting via an arbitrary special Kahler geometry. Our construction isExpand

Supersymmetric 3-branes on smooth ALE manifolds with flux
We construct a new family of classical BPS solutions of type IIB supergravity describing 3-branes transverse to a 6-dimensional space with topology R^2*ALE. They are characterized by a non-trivialExpand
