N=4 conformal supergravity and irreducible superfields

  • 23 Accesses

Abstract

Among irreducible N=4 superfields, into which can be decomposed a general N=4 scalar superfield, we select a superfield with 128 + 128 components which characterizes a conformai N=4 supercurrent. The obtained superfield is used in order to explicitly construct the linearized N = 4 conformai supergravity outside the mass shell in N = 4 superspace.
