# Constrained Superfields and Applications

@article{Farakos2017ConstrainedSA, title={Constrained Superfields and Applications}, author={Fotis Farakos}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2017} }

When supersymmetry is spontaneously broken it will be generically non-linearly realized. A method to describe the non-linear realization of supersymmetry is with constrained superfields. We discuss the basic features of this description and review some recent developments in supergravity.

Abstract
We study the nonlinear realization of supersymmetry in a dynamical/cosmological background in which derivative terms like kinetic terms are finite. Starting from linearly realized theories,…
