# M‐theory and gauged supergravities

@article{Roest2004MtheoryAG, title={M‐theory and gauged supergravities}, author={D. van der Roest}, journal={Fortschritte der Physik}, year={2004}, volume={53} }

We present a pedagogical discussion of the emergence of gauged supergravities from M‐theory. First, a review of maximal supergravity and its global symmetries and supersymmetric solutions is given. Next, different procedures of dimensional reduction are explained: reductions over a torus, a group manifold and a coset manifold and reductions with a twist. Emphasis is placed on the consistency of the truncations, the resulting gaugings and the possibility to generate field equations without an…
