@article{Bodendorfer2013TowardsLQ, title={Towards Loop Quantum Supergravity (LQSG) II. p-Form Sector}, author={Norbert Bodendorfer and Thomas Thiemann and Andreas Thurn}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2013}, volume={30}, pages={045007} }

In our companion paper, we focused on the quantization of the Rarita–Schwinger sector of supergravity theories in various dimensions by using an extension of loop quantum gravity to all spacetime dimensions. In this paper, we extend this analysis by considering the quantization of additional bosonic fields necessary to obtain a complete SUSY multiplet next to graviton and gravitino in various dimensions. As a generic example, we study concretely the quantization of the 3-index photon of minimal…
