# Positive Energy and Non-SUSY Flows in ISO(7) Gauged Supergravity

@article{Dibitetto2022PositiveEA, title={Positive Energy and Non-SUSY Flows in ISO(7) Gauged Supergravity}, author={Giuseppe Dibitetto}, journal={Universe}, year={2022} }

We consider maximal gauged supergravity in 4D with the ISO(7) gauge group, which arises from a consistent truncation of massive IIA supergravity on a six-sphere. Within its G2-invariant sector, the theory is known to possess a supersymmetric AdS extremum, as well as two non-supersymmetric ones. In this context, we provide a first-order formulation of the theory by making use of the Hamilton–Jacobi (HJ) formalism. This allows us to derive a positive energy theorem for both non-supersymmetric…

We review the generalized Witten-Nester spinor stability argument for flat domain wall solutions of gravitational theories. Neither the field theory nor the solution need be supersymmetric. Nor is…

The String landscape, black holes and gravity as the weakest force

We conjecture a general upper bound on the strength of gravity relative to gauge forces in quantum gravity. This implies, in particular, that in a four-dimensional theory with gravity and a U(1)…
