The main goal of the next three chapters is to study the formulation and structure of images = 1, D = 4 supergravity, discussed in Ch. 9, coupled to gauge and chiral multiplets. These ‘matter multiplets’ were introduced at the level of global supersymmetry in Ch. 6, and discussed more generally in Ch. 14. Matter-coupled supergravity theories are rather complicated, and the simplest systematic approach is the ‘superconformal method’. This method makes maximal use of the ideas of symmetry. Coleman and Mandula [29] showed that the maximal spacetime symmetry ...
