General study of ground states in gauged N=2 supergravity theories with symmetric scalar manifolds in 5 dimensions
Abstract
After reviewing the existing results we give an extensive analysis of the critical points of the potentials of the gauged N=2 YangMills/Einstein supergravity theories coupled to tensor multiplets and hypermultiplets. Our analysis includes all the possible gaugings of all N=2 MaxwellEinstein supergravity theories whose scalar manifolds are symmetric spaces. In general, the scalar potential gets contributions from Rsymmetry gauging, tensor couplings, and hypercouplings. We show that the coupling of a hypermultiplet into a theory whose potential has a nonzero value at its critical point, and gauging a compact subgroup of the hyperscalar isometry group will only rescale the value of the potential at the critical point by a positive factor, and therefore will not change the nature of an existing critical point. However this is not the case for noncompact SO(1,1) gaugings. An SO(1,1) gauging of the hyperisometry will generally lead to de Sitter vacua, which is analogous to the ground states found by simultaneously gauging SO(1,1) symmetry of the real scalar manifold with U(1){sub R} in earlier literature. SO(m,1) gaugings with m>1, which give contributions to the scalar potential only in the magical Jordan family theories, on the other hand, do not lead to de Sitter vacua. Antide Sittermore »

A class of conformally flat and asymptotically antide Sitter geometries involving profiles of scalar fields is studied from the point of view of gauged supergravity. The scalars involved in the solutions parametrize the SL(N,R)/SO(N) submanifold of the full scalar coset of the gauged supergravity, and are described by a symmetric potential with a universal form. These geometries descend via consistent truncation from distributions of D3branes, M2branes, or M5branes in ten or eleven dimensions. We exhibit analogous solutions asymptotic to AdS{sub 6} which descend from the D4D8brane system. We obtain the related sixdimensional theory by consistent reduction from massive type IIAmore »

Gauged N = 4 supergravity in six dimensions
We obtain N = 4 gauged supergravity in d = 6 dimensions from dimensional reduction of N = 2, d = 7 gauged supergravity. Starting from a topological mass term in the d = 7 theory one gets an N = 4, d = 6 irreducible model with a twoparameter potential and a local SU(2) in which an antisymmetric ranktwo tensor absorbs a Higgsvector field and becomes massive. Without a topological mass term in d = 7 we get the reducible coupling of pure gauged N = 4 supergravity to a vector multiplet. We also consider various truncations to mattercoupledmore » 
Separability of massive field equations for spin0 and spin1/2 charged particles in the general nonextremal rotating charged black hole spacetimes in minimal fivedimensional gauged supergravity
We continue to investigate the separability of massive field equations for spin0 and spin1/2 charged particles in the general, nonextremal, rotating, charged, ChongCveticLuePope black holes with two independent angular momenta and a nonzero cosmological constant in minimal D=5 gauged supergravity theory. We show that the complex KleinGordon 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 EinsteinMaxwellChernSimons background spacetime. A secondorder symmetry operator that commutes with the complex Laplacian operator is constructed from the separated solutions and expressed compactly in termsmore » 
Gauged sevendimensional N = 2 pure supergravity with twoform potential and its compactifications
The gauged sevendimensional N = 2 pure supergravity is constructed using differential forms. We use a twoform potential in place of a threeindex antisymmetric gauge field carrying the same number of physical degrees of freedom. This theory is compactified into either AdS/sup 3/ x S/sup 2/ x S/sup 2/ or AdS/sup 3/ x T/sup 4/.
