Title: Roles of Z{sub 2}-odd N=1 multiplets in off-shell dimensional reduction of five-dimensional supergravity

Abstract

We discuss the dimensional reduction of five-dimensional supergravity compactified on S{sup 1}/Z{sub 2} keeping the N=1 off-shell structure. In particular, we clarify the roles of the Z{sub 2}-odd N=1 multiplets in such an off-shell dimensional reduction. Their equations of motion provide constraints on the Z{sub 2}-even multiplets and extract the zero modes from the latter. The procedure can be applied to a wide range of models and performed in a background-independent way. We demonstrate it in some specific models.

  • There are some points to notice in the dimensional reduction of off-shell supergravity. We discuss a consistent way of dimensional reduction of five-dimensional off-shell supergravity compactified on S{sup 1}/Z{sub 2}. There are two approaches to the four-dimensional effective action, which are complementary to each other. Their essential difference is the treatment of the compensator and the radion superfields. We explain these approaches in detail and examine their consistency. Comments on related works are also provided.
  • Unitarity can be proven from the usual Z/sub 2/ grading of gauge and ghost fields, or from a Z/sub 2/ x Z/sub 2/ grading, geometrically derived by Ne'eman and Thierry-Mieg, or from a Z/sub 2/ x Z/sub 2/ x Z/sub 2/ grading derived here. The claim that only the Z/sub 2/ x Z/sub 2/ grading leads to unitarity is incorrect. The opposite is shown to hold: signs due to different gradings are physically unobservable. We show how the Z/sub 2/ x Z/sub 2/ grading follows from the Z/sub 2/ grading by taking a product space.
  • We obtain the general solution for nonextremal 3-charge dilatonic rotating black holes in the five dimensional U(1){sup 3} gauged N=2 supergravity coupled to two vector multiplets, in the case where the two rotation parameters are set equal. These solutions encompass all the previously-known extremal solutions, and, by setting the three charges equal, the recently-obtained nonextremal solutions of N=2 gauged five dimensional pure supergravity.
  • We continue to investigate the separability of massive field equations for spin-0 and spin-1/2 charged particles in the general, nonextremal, rotating, charged, Chong-Cvetic-Lue-Pope black holes with two independent angular momenta and a nonzero cosmological constant in minimal D=5 gauged supergravity theory. We show that the complex Klein-Gordon equation and the modified Dirac equation with the inclusion of an extra counterterm can be separated by variables into purely radial and purely angular parts in this general Einstein-Maxwell-Chern-Simons background spacetime. A second-order symmetry operator that commutes with the complex Laplacian operator is constructed from the separated solutions and expressed compactly in termsmore » of a rank-2 Staeckel-Killing tensor which admits a simple diagonal form in the chosen pentad one-forms so that it can be understood as the square of a rank-3 totally antisymmetric tensor. A first-order symmetry operator that commutes with the modified Dirac operator is expressed in terms of a rank-3 generalized Killing-Yano tensor and its covariant derivative. The Hodge dual of this generalized Killing-Yano tensor is a generalized principal conformal Killing-Yano tensor of rank-2, which can generate a 'tower' of generalized (conformal) Killing-Yano and Staeckel-Killing tensors that are responsible for the whole hidden symmetries of this general, rotating, charged, Kerr-anti-de Sitter black hole geometry. In addition, the first laws of black hole thermodynamics have been generalized to the case that the cosmological constant can be viewed as a thermodynamical variable.« less
  • The structure of Massey parameters {Delta}(Z{sub 1},Z{sub 2}) for (N,l,m)-(N+1,l+1,m) nonadiabatic couplings in the (Z{sub 1},e,Z{sub 2}) system (Z{sub 1},Z{sub 2} are the nuclear charges) is investigated as a function of the ratio {zeta}=Z{sub 2}/Z{sub 1}. It is found that {Delta}({zeta}) exhibit deep minima in certain regions {Delta}{zeta}{sub LZ}, associated with the coalescence of the loci of Q- and I-type branching points of adiabatic energy surfaces in the complex plane of internuclear distance. The positions of these minima, as well as the extension of the regions {Delta}{zeta}{sub LZ} in which the I-type (Landau-Zener) coupling prevails, are evaluated analytically. The implicationsmore » of this phenomenon for the low-energy collision dynamics are briefly discussed. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
