**Introduction to Supergravity**

by Horatiu Nastase

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 152

**Description**:

These lectures present an introduction to supergravity, and are intended for graduate students with a working knowledge of quantum field theory, including the elementary group theory needed for it, but no prior knowledge of general relativity, supersymmetry or string theory is assumed. I will start by introducing the needed elements of general relativity and supersymmetry. I will then describe the simplest cases of supergravity.

**BPS Black Holes in Supergravity**

by

**Riccardo D'Auria, Pietro Fre'**-

**arXiv**

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.

**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.
