First, the construction of such theories by superconformal methods is explained in detail, and relevant special geometries are obtained and characterized.
Following, the relation between the supergravity theories in the various dimensions is discussed. This leads eventually to the concept of very special geometry and quaternionic-Kahler manifolds.
This concise text is a valuable resource for graduate students and young researchers wishing to enter the field quickly and efficiently.
Antoine Van Proeyen is professor emeritus at KU Leuven, Belgium. He started his research on supergravity in 1979, soon after his Ph.D. He has been involved in the construction of various supergravity theories, resulting special geometries, relations to string theory and applications to phenomenology and cosmology. He is co-author of the textbook 'Supergravity' with prof. Dan Freedman and he published 150 research papers with an h impact factor over 50.
