# A New Venue of Spontaneous Supersymmetry Breaking in Supergravity

@article{Guendelman2015ANV, title={A New Venue of Spontaneous Supersymmetry Breaking in Supergravity}, author={Eduardo I Guendelman and E. R. Nissimov and Svetlana Pacheva and Mahary Vasihoun}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2015}, pages={105-115} }

We present a qualitatively new mechanism for dynamical spontaneous breakdown of supersymmetry in supergravity. Specifically, we construct a modified formulation of standard minimal N=1 supergravity as well as of anti-de Sitter supergravity in terms of a non-Riemannian spacetime volume-form (generally covariant integration measure density). The new supergravity formalism naturally triggers the appearance of a dynamically generated cosmological constant as an arbitrary integration constant which…
