Rigid supersymmetric backgrounds of 3dimensional NewtonCartan supergravity
Abstract
Recently, a nonrelativistic offshell formulation of three dimensional NewtonCartan supergravity was proposed as the c → ∞ limit of three dimensional N = 2 supergravity [1]. Here in the present paper we study supersymmetric backgrounds within this theory. Using integrability constraints for the nonrelativistic Killing spinor equations, we explicitly construct all maximally supersymmetric solutions, which admit four supercharges. In addition to these solutions, there are $$\frac{1}{2}$$ BPS solutions with reduced supersymmetry. We give explicit examples of such backgrounds and derive necessary conditions for backgrounds preserving two supercharges. Finally, we address how supersymmetric backgrounds of N = 2 supergravity are connected to the solutions found here in the c → ∞ limit.
