Progress Toward a Theory of Supergravity

- D. Freedman, P. Nieuwenhuizen, S. Ferrara
- Physics
- 15 June 1976

As a new approach to supergravity, an action containing only vierbein and Rarita-Schwinger fields (V/suba//sub mu/ and psi/sub mu/) is presented together with supersymmetry transformations for these… Expand

New Ghost Free Gravity Lagrangians with Propagating Torsion

- E. Sezgin, P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics
- 15 June 1980

A new class of ${R}^{2}$ type of actions without ghosts and tachyons is found in which both the vierbein field ${{e}_{\ensuremath{\mu}}}^{a}$ and the spin connection… Expand

On Euclidean spinors and Wick rotations

- P. Nieuwenhuizen, A. Waldron
- Physics
- 26 August 1996

Abstract We propose a continuous Wick rotation for Dirac, Majorana and Weyl spinors from Minkowski spacetime to Euclidean space which treats fermions on the same footing as bosons. The result is a… Expand

General construction of the unitary representations of anti-de sitter superalgebras and the spectrum of the S4 compactification of 11-dimensional supergravity☆

- M. Günaydın, P. Nieuwenhuizen, N. Warner
- Physics
- 1985

Abstract We construct the spectrum of the S4 compactification of d = 11 supergravity by simple algebraic methods. The spectrum consists of a special class of positive-energy unitary irreducible… Expand

Gauged maximally extended su - pergravity in seven dimensions

- M. Pernici, K. Pilch, P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics, Materials Science
- 9 August 1984

A rolled metallized film capacitor is encased between a pair of box halves (13 and 13') each having a pair of dovetailed slots (36 and 37) formed in opposed walls so that when the box halves are… Expand

Gauge theory of the conformal and superconformal group

- M. Kaku, P. Townsend, P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics
- 15 August 1977

Abstract We show that the locally scale invariant Weyl theory of gravity is the gauge theory of the conformal group. Proper conformal transformations are gauged by a non-propagating gauge field. A… Expand

On ghost-free tensor lagrangians and linearized gravitation

- P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics
- 1973

The most general linear Lagrangian for massless and massive tensor fields without ghosts and tachyons is determined. Transversality is used to eliminate massless ghosts. The linear Einstein and… Expand

Self-duality in odd dimensions

- P. Townsend, K. Pilch, P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics
- 23 February 1984

Abstract For spacetime dimension d = 4 k − 1 one may take the “square root” of the Proca equation for a massive antisymmetric tensor field. The result is a “self-dual” field which propagates half as… Expand

Quantum inequivalence of different field representations

- M. Duff, P. Nieuwenhuizen
- Physics
- 28 July 1980

Abstract The gauge theories of antisymmetric tensor potentials A μν and A μνϱ describe 1 and 0 degrees of freedom, respectively. Yet we show the gravitational trace anomalies of A μν and a scalar… Expand
