Abstract The general form of N = 2 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector multiplets and hypermultiplets with a generic gauging of the scalar manifold isometries is given. This extends the results already available in the literature in that we use a coordinate independent and manifestly symplectic covariant formalism which allows us to cover theories difficult to formulate within a superspace or tensor calculus approach. We provide the complete lagrangian and supersymmetry… 
D=4, N=2 gauged supergravity in the presence of tensor multiplets
Abstract Using superspace techniques we construct the general theory describing D=4, N =2 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector and scalar-tensor multiplets. The scalar manifold of

Gauged N=2 Supergravity and Partial Breaking of Extended Supersymmetry
We review the general gauged N=2 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector multiplets and hypermultiplets. We consider two different models where N=2 supersymmetry is broken to N=1
General Matter Coupled N=4 Gauged Supergravity in Five Dimensions
We construct the general form of matter coupled N=4 gauged supergravity in five dimensions. Depending on the structure of the gauge group, these theories are found to involve vector and/or tensor

On full-fledged supergravity cosmologies and their Weyl group asymptotics
We consider a class of cosmological solutions of d=4, N=2 supergravity theories coupled to vector multiplets. The solutions result from performing a compactification to three dimensions, where the
N=1/2 supergravity with matter in four Euclidean dimensions
An N=1/2 supergravity in four Euclidean spacetime dimensions, coupled to both vector- and scalar-multiplet matter, is constructed for the first time. We begin with the standard N=(1,1) conformally
A symplectic covariant formulation of special Kähler geometry in superconformal calculus
We present a formulation of the coupling of vector multiplets to N = 2 supergravity which is symplectic covariant (and thus is not based on a prepotential) and uses superconformal tensor calculus. We
What is special Kähler geometry
The scalars in vector multiplets of N = 2 supersymmetric theories in four dimensions exhibit ‘special Kahler geometry’, related to duality symmetries, due to their coupling to the vectors. In the


Lagrangians of N = 2 supergravity-matter systems
We present explicit expressions for general actions of vector and scalar multiplets coupled to N = 2 supergravity. We outline their construction which is based on the superconformal tensor calculus.
We consider the potential of a general matter system of N = 2 vector and scalar multiplets coupled to supergravity. For lagrangians that are initially quadratic in the matter fields we prove that the
Special and quaternionic isometries: General couplings in N = 2 supergravity and the scalar potential☆
Abstract The general lagrangian for N = 2 matter-coupled supergravity is obtained, by gauging general isometries of quaternionic manifolds which can be coupled to supergravity. The resulting theories
The complete N = 3 matter coupled supergravity
Abstract The complete N = 3 matter coupling to supergravity is obtained in a geometrical framework. This coupling always exists if the 3 n complex scalars of the n vector multiplets are co-ordinates
