A bstractThe dynamics of the Goldstino mode of spontaneously broken supersymmetry is universal, being fully determined by the non-linearly realized symmetry. We investigate the small-field limit of this theory. This model non-linearly realizes an alternative supersymmetry algebra with vanishing anti-commutators between the fermionic generators, much like an internal supersymmetry. This Goldstino theory is akin to the Galilean scalar field theory that arises as the small-field limit of Dirac… 

An algebraic classification of exceptional EFTs. Part II. Supersymmetry

Abstract We present a novel approach to classify supersymmetric effective field theories (EFTs) whose scattering amplitudes exhibit enhanced soft limits. These enhancements arise due to

An algebraic classification of exceptional EFTs

Abstract We classify four-dimensional effective field theories (EFTs) with enhanced soft limits, which arise due to non-linearly realised symmetries on the Goldstone modes of such theories. We

UV constraints on massive spinning particles: lessons from the gravitino

Self-interacting massive particles with spin ≥ 1 unavoidably violate unitarity; the question is at what scale. For spin-1 the strong coupling scale (at which perturbative unitarity is lost) cannot be

Ghostbusters in f (R) supergravity

A bstractf (R) supergravity is known to contain a ghost mode associated with higher-derivative terms if it contains Rn with n greater than two. We remove the ghost in f (R) supergravity by

No-go theorem for a gauge vector as a spacetime Goldstone mode

Scalars and fermions can arise as Goldstone modes of non-linearly realised extensions of the Poincare group (with important implications for the soft limits of such theories): the Dirac-Born-Infeld



Origin of soft limits from nonlinear supersymmetry in Volkov-Akulov theory

A bstractWe apply the background field technique, recently developed for a general class of nonlinear symmetries, at tree level, to the Volkov-Akulov theory with spontaneously broken N=1$$

Volkov-akulov theory and D-branes

The action of supersymmetric Born-Infeld theory (D-9-brane in a Lorentz covariant static gauge) has a geometric form of the Volkov-Akulov-type. The first non-linearly realized supersymmetry can be

Nonlinear (super)symmetries and amplitudes

A bstractThere is an increasing interest in nonlinear supersymmetries in cosmological model building. Independently, elegant expressions for the all-tree amplitudes in models with nonlinear

On ghost-free supersymmetric galileons

A bstractWe present consistent supersymmetric theories invariant under the generalization of the Galilean shift symmetry to $ \mathcal{N} $ = 1 superspace. These theories are constructed via the

New Goldstone multiplet for partially broken supersymmetry

The partial spontaneous breaking of rigid N=2 supersymmetry implies the existence of a massless N=1 Goldstone multiplet. In this paper we show that the spin-(1/2,1) Maxwell multiplet can play this

DBI and the Galileon reunited

We derive the relativistic generalization of the Galileon, by studying the brane position modulus of a relativistic probe brane embedded in a five- dimensional bulk. In the appropriate Galilean

Supersymmetric galileons and auxiliary fields in 2+1 dimensions

In this work we study various aspects of supersymmetric three-dimensional higher-derivative field theories. We classify all possible models without derivative terms in the auxiliary field of the

The other effective fermion compositeness

A bstractWe discuss the only two viable realizations of fermion compositeness described by a calculable relativistic effective field theory consistent with unitarity, crossing symmetry and

Supersymmetric Galileons

Galileon theories are of considerable interest since they allow for stable violations of the null energy condition. Since such violations could have occurred during a highenergy regime in the history
