Five-dimensional vector-coupled supergravity on a manifold with boundaries 1

We consider the bosonic and fermionic symmetries of five-dimensional Maxwelland YangMills-Einstein supergravity theories on a spacetime with boundaries (isomorphic to M × S/Z2). Due to the appearance of the “Chern-Simons” term, the classical action is not generally invariant under gauge and supersymmetries. Once bulk vector fields are allowed to propagate… CONTINUE READING
