# D = 3, N = 8 conformal supergravity and the Dragon window

@article{Cederwall2011D3, title={D = 3, N = 8 conformal supergravity and the Dragon window}, author={Martin Cederwall and Ulf Gran and Bengt E. W. Nilsson}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2011}, volume={2011}, pages={1-22} }

We give a superspace description of D = 3, N = 8 supergravity. The formulation is off-shell in the sense that the equations of motion are not implied by the superspace constraints (but an action principle is not given). The multiplet structure is unconventional, which we connect to the existence of a “Dragon window”, that is modules occurring in the supercurvature but not in the supertorsion. According to Dragon’s theorem this cannot happen above three dimensions. We clarify the relevance of… CONTINUE READING
