**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.
