# On the (im)possibility of a supersymmetric extension of NGT

@article{Moussa2001OnT, title={On the (im)possibility of a supersymmetric extension of NGT}, author={Karim Ait Moussa}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2001} }

We investigate the possibility of constructing a locally supersymmetric extension of NGT (Nonsymmetric Gravitation Theory), based on the graded extension of the Poincare group. In the framework of the simple model that we propose, we end up with a no-go result, namely the impossibility of cancelling some linear contribution in the gravitino field. This drawback seems to seriously undermine the construction of a supergravity based on NGT.

This work reconsiders gravity theories constructed from a nonsymmetric metric and finds that the addition of nonderivative, ‘‘cosmological’’ terms formally restores consistency by giving a mass to the antisymmetric tensor field, thereby transmuting it into a fifth-force-like massive vector but with novel possible matter couplings.

It is shown that the nonsymmetric metric model of gravity is subject to physically unacceptable formal difficulties even as an effective field theory: When expanded about a Riemannian background, the model exhibits curvature-coupled negative-energy modes and unacceptable asymptotic behavior.
