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…
