We investigate the compactification of D=11 supergravity to D=5,4,3, on compact manifolds of holonomy SU(3) (Calabi-Yau), G 2 , and Spin(7), respectively , making use of examples of the latter two cases found recently by Joyce. In each case the lower dimensional theory is a Maxwell/Einstein supergravity theory. We find evidence for an equivalence, in certain cases, with heterotic string com-pactifications from D=10 to D=5,4,3, on compact manifolds of holonomy SU(2) (K 3 ×S 1), SU(3), and G 2… CONTINUE READING
