N = 2 supergravity and N = 2 super Yang-Mills theory on general scalar manifolds: Symplectic covariance gaugings and the momentum map

- L. Andrianopoli, M. Bertolini, +4 authors T. Magri
- Mathematics, Physics
- 6 May 1996

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… Expand

Quaternionic Manifolds for Type II Superstring Vacua of Calabi-Yau Spaces

- S. Ferrara, S. Sabharwal
- Physics
- 5 March 1990

Abstract In type II theories compactified on Calabi-Yau manifolds the moduli fields are accompanied by (Ramond-Ramond) scalar superpartners. N = 2 space-time supersymmetry requires the low-energy… Expand

Black holes and critical points in moduli space

- S. Ferrara, G. Gibbons, R. Kallosh
- Physics
- 13 February 1997

We study the stabilization of scalars near a supersymmetric black hole horizon using the equation of motion of a particle moving in a potential and background metric. When the relevant 4-dimensional… Expand

GEOMETRY OF TYPE II SUPERSTRINGS AND THE MODULI OF SUPERCONFORMAL FIELD THEORIES

- S. Cecotti, S. Ferrara, L. Girardello
- Physics
- 1 June 1989

We study general properties of the low-energy effective theory for 4D type II superstrings obtained by the compactification on an abstract (2,2) superconformal system. This is the basic step towards… Expand

Second quantized mirror symmetry

- S. Ferrara, J. Harvey, A. Strominger, C. Vafa
- Physics
- 25 May 1995

We propose and give strong evidence for a duality relating Type II theories on CalabiYau spaces and heterotic strings on K3× T 2 , both of which have N = 2 spacetime supersymmetry. Entries in the… Expand

Spectrum of type IIB supergravity on AdS5×T11: Predictions on N=1SCFT's

- A. Ceresole, G. Dall’Agata, R. D'Auria, S. Ferrara
- Physics
- 31 May 1999

We derive the full Kaluza-Klein spectrum of type IIB supergravity compactified on ${\mathrm{AdS}}_{5}{\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}\mathrm{T}}^{11}$ with… Expand

Tensor representations of conformal algebra and conformally covariant operator product expansion

- S. Ferrara, A. Grillo, R. Gatto
- Physics
- 1 March 1973

Abstract A conformally covariant formulation of operator product expansion is discussed as an expansion of the product of two representations into a direct sum of irreducible representations. The… Expand

Transformation properties of the supercurrent

- S. Ferrara, B. Zumino
- Physics
- 3 March 1975

Abstract It is shown that the spinor current, if correctly defined, belongs to a supermultiplet, together with the energy-momentum tensor and the axial-vector current. The transformation properties… Expand

The symplectic structure of N=2 supergravity and its central extension

- A. Ceresole, R. D'Auria, S. Ferrara
- Physics
- 27 September 1995

We report on the formulation of N = 2, D = 4 supergravity coupled to nv abelian vector multiplets in presence of electric and magnetic charges. General formulae for the (moduli dependent) electric… Expand

ORBITS OF EXCEPTIONAL GROUPS, DUALITY AND BPS STATES IN STRING THEORY

- S. Ferrara, M. Gunaydin
- Physics
- 5 August 1997

We give an invariant classification of orbits of the fundamental representations of the exceptional groups E7(7) and E6(6) which classify BPS states in string and M theories toroidally compactified… Expand
