We argue that 11-dimensional supergravity can be described by a nonlinear realization based on the group E11. This requires a formulation of 11-dimensional supergravity in which the gravitational degrees of freedom are described by two fields which are related by duality. We show the existence of such a description of gravity. 
E8 duality and dual gravity
A bstractWe construct the non-linear realisation of the E8 motion group and compare this with the bosonic sector of eleven dimensional supergravity. The construction naturally leads to the
E11, ten forms and supergravity
We extend the previously given non-linear realisation of E11 for the decomposition appropriate to IIB supergravity to include the ten forms that were known to be present in the adjoint
E11 and spheric vacuum solutions of eleven- and ten dimensional supergravity theories
In view of the newly conjectured Kac-Moody symmetries of supergravity theories placed in eleven and ten dimensions, relations between these symmetry groups and possible compactifications are
Exploring M-theory symmetries through D = 11 supergravity
We study the reduction of the Free Differential Algebra (FDA) of D = 11 supergravity to an ordinary algebra. Such a reduction permits to discover as underlying symmetry of trivial backgrounds an
IIA Ten-forms and the Gauge Algebras of Maximal Supergravity Theories
We show that IIA supergravity can be extended with two independent 10-form potentials. These give rise to a single BPS IIA 9-brane. We investigate the bosonic gauge algebra of both IIA and IIB
E11 and supersymmetry
We introduce fermions into the E11 non-linear realisation. We show, at low levels, that the commutators of the Cartan involution invariant subalgebra of E11 with the known supersymmetry
Non-linear parent action and dual N=1 D=4 supergravity
We give N=1 supersymmetric extension of D=4 dual gravity non-linear action proposed in arXiv:0806.2775. The dual supergravity action and symmetries of the model, but supersymmetry, are realized in a
E-10 and gauged maximal supergravity
We compare the dynamics of maximal three-dimensional gauged supergravity in appropriate truncations with the equations of motion that follow from a one-dimensional E10/K(E10) coset model at the first

Kaluza-Klein supergravity in ten dimensions
The authors construct a massive version of N=2 supergravity in ten dimensions by compactification of the eleven-dimensional, N=1 theory. This theory describes the usual N=2 massless supermultiplet,
Hidden superconformal symmetry in M-theory
The bosonic sectors of the eleven-dimensional and IIA supergravity theories are derived as non-linear realisations. The underlying group includes the conformal group, the general linear group and as
