**Introduction to Supergravity**

by Henning Samtleben

**Publisher**: Leibniz Universität 2007**Number of pages**: 29

**Description**:

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.
