Near horizon supergravity superspace

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 525)


We present a construction of the superspace of maximally supersymmetric adS p+2×S d−p−2 near-horizon geometry based entirely on the supergravity constraints of which the bosonic space is a solution. Besides the geometric superfields, i.e. the vielbeine and the spinconnection, we also derive the isometries of the superspace together with the compensating tangent space transformations to all orders in θ.
