**A Beginner's Guide to Supergravity**

by Ulrich Theis

**Publisher**: Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena 2006**Number of pages**: 64

**Description**:

This is a write-up of lectures on basic N = 1 supergravity in four dimensions given during a one-semester course at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. Aimed at graduate students with some previous exposure to general relativity and rigid supersymmetry, we provide a self-contained derivation of the off-shell supergravity multiplet and the most general couplings of chiral multiplets to the latter.

**New Lectures on Supergravity**

by

**Nilo Serpa**-

**arXiv**

This essay aims to summarize the main physical features arising from a new supersymmetric theory of gravitation. It deals with gravity inside the limits of a meta-field theory, that is, a non-quantized but consistent representation of supergravity.

**BPS Black Holes in Supergravity**

by

**Riccardo D'Auria, Pietro Fre'**-

**arXiv**

In these lectures we explain the concept of supergravity p-branes and BPS black holes. The Lectures are meant to be introductory and self contained for non supersymmetry experts but at the same time fully detailed and complete on the subject.
