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.

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.

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.
