Introduction to Supergravity

There are several reasons to consider the combination of supersymmetry and gravitation. The foremost is that if supersymmetry turns out to be realized at all in nature, then it must eventually appear in the context of gravity.

These lectures present an introduction to supergravity for graduate students with a working knowledge of quantum field theory and the elementary group theory, but no prior knowledge of general relativity, supersymmetry or string theory is assumed.

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.

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.

An elementary introduction to black holes in supergravity and string theory. The focus is on BPS solutions in four- and higher-dimensional supergravity and string theory. Basic ideas are explained in detail, including exercises with solutions.
