More on the hidden symmetries of 11D supergravity

Super Cartan geometry and the super Ashtekar connection

This work is devoted to the geometric approach to supergravity. More precisely, we interpret N = 1 supergravity as a super Cartan geometry which provides a link between supergravity and super

On the hidden maxwell superalgebra underlying D=4 supergravity

In this work, we expand the hidden AdS ‐Lorentz superalgebra underlying D=4 supergravity, reaching a (hidden) Maxwell superalgebra. The latter can be viewed as an extension involving cosmological

Extended Lie derivatives and a new formulation of D=11 supergravity

Introducing an extended Lie derivative along the dual of A, the 3-form field of D = 11 supergravity, the full diffeomorphism algebra of D = 11 supergravity is presented. This algebra suggests a new

Division Algebras and Supersymmetry IV

Recent work applying higher gauge theory to the superstring has indicated the presence of 'higher symmetry', and the same methods work for the super-2-brane. In the previous paper in this series, we

Group Theoretical Hidden Structure of Supergravity Theories in Higher Dimensions

The purpose of my PhD thesis is to investigate different group theoretical and geometrical aspects of supergravity theories. To this aim, several research topics are explored: On one side, the

Hidden role of Maxwell superalgebras in the free differential algebras of D = 4 and D = 11 supergravity

The purpose of this paper is to show that the so-called Maxwell superalgebra in four dimensions, which naturally involves the presence of a nilpotent fermionic generator, can be interpreted as a

Hidden gauge structure of supersymmetric free differential algebras

A bstractThe aim of this paper is to clarify the role of the nilpotent fermionic generator Q′ introduced in [6] and appearing in the hidden supergroup underlying the free differential algebra (FDA)

On the hidden symmetries of $D=11$ supergravity

We report on recent developments regarding the supersymmetric Free Differential Algebra describing the vacuum structure of $D=11$ supergravity. We focus on the emergence of a hidden superalgebra
