In this chapter we begin to assemble the ingredients of supergravity by studying the free spin-3/2 field. Supergravity is the gauge theory of global supersymmetry, which we will usually abbreviate as SUSY. The key feature is that the symmetry parameter of global SUSY transformations is a constant spinor images. In supergravity it becomes a general function in spacetime, images(x). The associated gauge field is a vector–spinor (x). This field and the corresponding ...
