Ultraviolet Properties of Maximal Supergravity
Abstract
We argue that recent results in string perturbation theory indicate that the fourgraviton amplitude of fourdimensional N=8 supergravity might be ultraviolet finite up to eight loops. We similarly argue that the hloop Mgraviton amplitude might be finite for h<7+M/2.

R^4 Counterterm and E_{7(7)} Symmetry in Maximal Supergravity
The coefficient of a potential R{sup 4} counterterm in N = 8 supergravity has been shown previously to vanish in an explicit threeloop calculation. The R{sup 4} term respects N = 8 supersymmetry; hence this result poses the question of whether another symmetry could be responsible for the cancellation of the threeloop divergence. In this article we investigate possible restrictions from the coset symmetry E{sub 7(7)}/SU(8), using a doublesoft scalar limit relation derived recently by ArkaniHamed et al. In order to implement the relation, we make use of the fact that the R{sup 4} term occurs in the lowenergy expansionmore » 
NonAbelian black holes in D=5 maximal gauged supergravity
We investigate static nonAbelian black hole solutions of antide Sitter (AdS) EinsteinYangMillsdilaton gravity, which is obtained as a consistent truncation of fivedimensional maximal gauged supergravity. If the dilaton is (consistently) set to zero, the remaining equations of motion, with a sphericallysymmetric ansatz, may be derived from a superpotential. The associated firstorder equations admit an explicit solution supported by a nonAbelian SU(2) gauge potential, which has a logarithmically growing mass term. In an extremal limit the horizon geometry becomes AdS{sub 2}xS{sup 3}. If the dilaton is also excited, the equations of motion cannot easily be solved explicitly, but we obtain themore » 
Extremal black attractors in 8D maximal supergravity
Motivated by the new higher Dsupergravity solutions on intersecting attractors obtained by Ferrara et al. in [Phys. Rev. D 79, 065031 (2009)], we focus in this paper on 8D maximal supergravity with moduli space (SL(3,R)/SO(3))x(SL(2,R)/SO(2)) and study explicitly the attractor mechanism for various configurations of extremal black pbranes (antibranes) with the typical near horizon geometries AdS{sub p+2}xS{sup m}xT{sup 6pm} and p=0, 1, 2, 3, 4; 2{<=}m{<=}6. Interpretations in terms of wrapped M2 and M5 branes of the 11D Mtheory on 3torus are also given.
