New Goldstone multiplet for partially broken supersymmetry

  title={New Goldstone multiplet for partially broken supersymmetry},
  author={Jonathan A. Bagger and Alexander Galperin},
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 role. We construct its full nonlinear transformation law and find the invariant Goldstone action. The spin-1 piece of the action turns out to be of BornInfeld type, and the full superfield action is duality invariant. This leads us to conclude that the Goldstone multiplet can be associated with a… CONTINUE READING
