# Twisted eleven-dimensional supergravity

@inproceedings{Raghavendran2021TwistedES, title={Twisted eleven-dimensional supergravity}, author={Surya Raghavendran and Ingmar Saberi and Brian R. Williams}, year={2021} }

We construct a fully interacting holomorphic/topological theory in eleven dimensions that is defined on products of Calabi–Yau fivefolds with real one-manifolds. The theory describes a particular deformation of the cotangent bundle to the moduli space of Calabi–Yau structures on the fivefold. Its field content matches the holomorphic (or minimal) twist of the eleven-dimensional supergravity multiplet recently computed by the second two authors, and we offer numerous consistency checks showing…
