# Gauged D = 7 supergravity on the S 1 / Z 2 orbifold

@article{Avramis2004GaugedD, title={Gauged D = 7 supergravity on the S 1 / Z 2 orbifold}, author={Spyros D. Avramis and Alexandros A. Kehagias}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={71}, pages={066005} }

We construct the most general couplings of a bulk seven-dimensional Yang-Mills-Einstein $\mathcal{N}=2$ supergravity with a boundary six-dimensional chiral $\mathcal{N}=(0,1)$ theory of vectors and charged hypermultiplets. The boundary consists of two brane worlds sitting at the fixed points of an ${\mathbf{S}}^{1}/{\mathbb{Z}}_{2}$ compactification of the seven-dimensional bulk supergravity. The resulting 6D massless spectrum surviving the orbifold projection is anomalous. By introducing…
