Ten-dimensional supergravity constraints from the pure spinor formalism for the superstring

- N. Berkovits, P. Howe
- Physics
- 18 December 2001

Abstract It has recently been shown that the ten-dimensional superstring can be quantized using the BRST operator Q =∮ λ α d α , where λ α is a pure spinor satisfying λγ m λ =0 and d α is the… Expand

On harmonic superspace

- P. Howe
- Physics
- 15 December 1998

A short survey of some aspects of harmonic superspace is given. In particular, the $d=3, N=8$ scalar supermultiplet and the $d=6, N=(2,0)$ tensor multiplet are described as analytic superfields in… Expand

Supergravity in superspace

- P. Howe
- Physics
- 31 May 1982

Abstract A comprehensive discussion of the formulation of supergravity theories in superspace is presented. After reviewing the general formalism and the linearized theory, we exhibit a complete… 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.

New supergravities with central charges and Killing spinors in 2+1 dimensions

- P. Howe, J. Izquierdo, G. Papadopoulos, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 5 May 1995

Abstract We construct a new class of ( p , q )-extended Poincare supergravity theories in 2+1 dimensions as Chern-Simons theories of supersymmetry algebras with both central and automorphism charges.… Expand

The Self-Dual String Soliton

- P. Howe, N. Lambert, P. West
- Physics
- 1 September 1997

We obtain a BPS soliton of the M-theory fivebrane's equations of motion representing a supersymmetric self-dual string. The resulting solution is then dimensionally reduced and used to obtain 0-brane… Expand

Multicritical points in two dimensions, the renormalization group and the ϵ expansion

Abstract We calculate, using the ϵ expansion, the critical exponents for the two-dimensional potential φ2n. It is found that the results at lowest perturbative order are not in agreement with what… Expand

The Complete N=2, D=10 Supergravity

The alternative N = 2, d = 10 supergravity, which is not derivable by dimensional reduction from the N = 1, d = 11 theory, is constructed at the full non-linear level. The transformation laws of the… Expand

Covariant field equations of the M theory five-brane

Abstract The component form of the equations of motion for the 5-brane in eleven dimensions is derived from the superspace equations. These equations are fully covariant in six dimensions. It is… Expand

Supersymmetry in six dimensions

- P. Howe, G. Sierra, P. Townsend
- Physics
- 11 July 1983

Abstract We present off-shell formulations of six-dimensional supersymmetric matter and gauge theories in superspace. We construct the maximally supersymmetric YM theory in terms of d = 6… Expand
