Killing Spinors and SYM on Curved Spaces

  title={Killing Spinors and SYM on Curved Spaces},
  author={Matthias Blau},
Motivated by discussions of wrapped branes in the AdS/CFT context, we investigate globally supersymmetric counterparts of standard Poincaré supersymmetric SYM theories on curved space-times admitting Killing spinors and find two families of theories in all dimensions less than six and eight respectively. The former differs from the standard theory only by mass terms for the fermions and scalars and modified supersymmetry transformation rules, the latter in addition has cubic Chern-Simons like… CONTINUE READING
