Supergravity, together with string theory, is one of the most significant developments in theoretical physics. Written by two of the most respected workers in the field, this is the first-ever authoritative and systematic account of supergravity. The book starts by reviewing aspects of relativistic field theory in Minkowski spacetime/5(12).

The book focuses on d=4 and N=1, which is perfect to start. The book is rather mathematical, in character. Some might complain that it is perhaps too formal, but I feel that without knowing how the yoga of supersymmetry works, in detail, it is probably difficult, if not impossible, to get a sound understanding of this by: Supergravity, together with string theory, is one of the most significant developments in theoretical physics.

Written by two of the most respected workers in the field, this is the first-ever authoritative and systematic account of supergravity.

Supergravity definition is - any of various theories in physics that are based on supersymmetry and attempt to unify general relativity and quantum theory and that state that the principal transmitter of gravity is the graviton.

This widely acclaimed introduction to N = 1 supersymmetry and supergravity is aimed at readers familiar with relativistic quantum field theory who wish to learn about the supersymmetry algebra.

In this new volume Supersymmetry and Supergravity has been greatly expanded to include a detailed derivation of the most general coupling of super-symmetric gauge theory to supergravity.5/5(1).

Supergravity is an essential ingredient in so many areas of ultra high energy physics, yet it is rarely taught systematically, even at the graduate level.

Students most often have to learn along with applying, and must use the now classic older : Ruth Gregory. Supergravity, together with string theory, is one of the most significant developments in theoretical physics.

The book starts by reviewing aspects of relativistic field theory in Minkowski : Cambridge University Press. Supergravity theories permit extra dimensions in space-time, beyond the familiar three dimensions of space and one of time. Supergravity models in higher dimensions “reduce” to the familiar four-dimensional space-time if it is postulated that the extra dimensions are compacted or curled up in such a way that they are not noticeable.

The book begins with a brief overview of the history of unification and then goes into a detailed exposition of both fundamental and phenomenological topics.” Professor Nath is co-author of the “first supergravity” theory with Arnowitt [Phys.

Lett.B56, ()] and with Arnowitt and Zumino [B56, 81, ]. Supergravity theory is Einstein's gravity extended with supersymmetry, meaning that it has at least one spin-3/2 particle in addition to a spin 2 particle, making a collection of fields that together have a long-range gravity force with a superpar.

Book Description. A unified theory embracing all physical phenomena is a major goal of theoretical physics. In the early s, many physicists looked to eleven-dimensional supergravity in the hope that it might provide that elusive superunified theory.
