A Beginner's Guide to Supergravity

A Beginner's Guide to Supergravity
by Ulrich Theis

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

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.
