# Towards loop quantum supergravity (LQSG): I. Rarita–Schwinger sector

@article{Bodendorfer2013TowardsLQ, title={Towards loop quantum supergravity (LQSG): I. Rarita–Schwinger sector}, author={Norbert Bodendorfer and Thomas Thiemann and A. Thurn}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2013}, volume={30} }

In our companion papers, we managed to derive a connection formulation of Lorentzian general relativity in D + 1 dimensions with compact gauge group SO(D + 1) such that the connection is Poisson-commuting, which implies that loop quantum gravity quantization methods apply. We also provided the coupling to standard matter. In this paper, we extend our methods to derive a connection formulation of a large class of Lorentzian signature supergravity theories, in particular 11 D SUGRA and 4 D, N = 8…
