Fivedimensional YangMillsEinstein supergravity on orbifolds: Parity assignments
Abstract
We discuss the options for parity assignments in (onshell) N=2 fivedimensional YangMillsEinstein supergravity theories (YMESGTs) coupled to tensor and hypermultiplets on the orbifold spacetime M{sub 4}xS{sup 1}/Z{sub 2}. Along the lines of orbifoldgrand unified theories (GUTs), we allow for general breaking of the fivedimensional gauge group at the orbifold fixed points. We then extend the discussion to the case where the orbifold is S{sup 1}/(Z{sub 2}xZ{sub 2}). We do not presume the existence of fields with support only at fixed points. As in the familiar case of (rigid) superYangMills theories on such orbifolds, only bulk hypermultiplets can lead to chiral multiplets in complex representations of the gauge group on the boundaries. Massless chiral multiplets coming from bulk vector or tensor multiplets can potentially be used as Higgs supermultiplets, though a 'doublettriplet' splitting via parity assignments is not available for the tensor sector. We also find parity assignments for objects other than fields that appear in the Lagrangian, which will partially determine the structure of interactions of the boundary theories. Assigning odd parities to the scalar sector of vector/tensor multiplets requires the fourdimensional boundary moduli spaces to lie on the boundary of the classical Kaehler cone, which corresponds to collapsed CalabiYaumore »

We construct the fivedimensional (d = 5) YangMillsEinstein supergravity with noncompact gauge group SU(3,1). This model is a unified theory in the sense that there is a symmetry connecting each field to all the others, and it is the unique d = 5 YangMillsEinstein supergravity theory with this property. We show that consistency of the quantum theory requires the dimensionless product kappa/sup 1/g/sup s/ of gravitational constant and gauge coupling constant to be quantized.

Gauged YangMillsEinstein supergravity with threeindex field in seven dimensions
We construct couplings of n vector supermultiplets to d = 7,N = 2 supergravity with a threeindex field. It is shown that this gauged theory is equivalent to its dual theory under the duality transformation in contrast with d = 7,N = 2 pure supergravity. 
YangMillsEinstein supergravity in seven dimensions
We construct couplings of n vector multiplets to sevendimensional N = 2 supergravity. The 3n scalars of the theory parametrize the coset SO(n,3)/SO(n) x SO(3). The (n+3) vector fields are used to gauge either an SO(3) x H (dimension H = n) or an SO(3,1) x H (dim H = n3)= subgroup of SO(n,3). The theory has an indefinite potential which triggers compactification into (Minkowski)/sub 4/ x S/sup 3/, with surviving N = 1 supersymmetry. 
Superspace formulation of tendimensional N = 1 supergravity coupled to N = 1 super YangMills theory
We present an onshell superspace formulation of tendimensional N = 1 supergravity coupled to N = 1 super YangMills theory. The coupling is completely specified in superspace by the Bianchi identity dH = c/sub 1/trF/sup 2/, where H is the gaugeinvariant threeform field strength of supergravity and F is the twoform super YangMills field strength. We also briefly discuss the theory that results from modifying this Bianchi identity by the addition of a piece proportional to the square of the super curvature twoform. 
Some cubic couplings in type IIB supergravity on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} and threepoint functions in fourdimensional super YangMills theory at large N
All cubic couplings in type IIB supergravity on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} that involve two scalar fields s{sup I} that are mixtures of the five form field strength on S{sup 5} and the trace of the graviton on S{sup 5} are derived by using the covariant equations of motion and the quadratic action for type IIB supergravity on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5}. All corresponding threepoint functions in SYM{sub 4} are calculated in the supergravity approximation. It is pointed out that the scalars s{sup I} correspond not to the chiral primary operators in the N=4 SYM but rather to a proper extension ofmore »
