Supergravity theories are field theories with gauged or local supersymmetry. In Chs. 9 and 10 we introduced the basic ‘pure’ supergravity theories in spacetime dimensions 4 and 11. There are many other types of supergravity, for example, extended supergravity theories with 2 ≤ images ≤ 8 in four dimensions and higher dimensional theories in dimension 5 ≤ D ≤ 10. A D-dimensional supergravity theory embodies theproperties of spinors in dimension D, which we discussed in detail in Ch. 3. The primary purpose of this chapter is to develop an overview of ...
