# Magic supergravities, N= 8 and black hole composites

@article{Ferrara2006MagicSN, title={Magic supergravities, N= 8 and black hole composites}, author={Sergio Ferrara and Eric G. Gimon and Renata Kallosh}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2006}, volume={74}, pages={125018} }

We present explicit U-duality invariants for the R, C, Q, O (real, complex, quaternionic, and octonionic) magic supergravities in four and five dimensions using complex forms with a reality condition. From these invariants we derive an explicit entropy function and corresponding stabilization equations which we use to exhibit stationary multicenter 1/2 Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) solutions of these N=2 d=4 theories, starting with the octonionic one with E{sub 7(-25)} duality symmetry…
