Dear all
I am studying formulating supergravity under De Sitter group can anyone suggest me a reference
Thank you

Thank you
i just want tto know how can i contract from de sitter to poincarehaushofer said:You mean the fact that supergravity doesnt' allow for dS-vacua unless you turn on vevs?
Hellojedishrfu said:I don't have a direct answer for a book, but for those here that may it would help a lot if you told us your level of education. Are you an undergrad or a graduate student in Physics?
What other physics/math courses have you taken related to Supergravity?
Lastly, you might find some references to investigate at the end of this wikipedia article:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supergravity
in particular this book on Supergravity by Freedman:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0521194016/?tag=pfamazon01-20
you can check its table of contents to see if it has what you're looking for.
You mean a Inönü-Wigner contraction in the underlying algebra? You take the radius of curvature R and send it to infinity, R --> oo. I'm not sure if you also can do this contraction straight away in the transformation rules and the curvatures; one has to be careful with this, but you can check that immediately for yourself.shereen1 said:No

Yes, that book is great. Van Proeyen also has a lot of online notes, on which this book is based.jedishrfu said:in particular this book on Supergravity by Freedman:

Dear Haushoferhaushofer said:Shereen1, if you want serious answers with content here you should formule questions with content; at least some background. I responded to your question about torsion in SUGRA earlier, but it's not very stimulating if you don't reply to your questions or give no context. 'Contraction" can mean a lot of things. And what kind of SUGRA are you studying? What references did you find so far? Which textbook? Etc.
I will start doing the contraction. In fact i didnt start yet dealing with AdS Backgrounds.haushofer said:You mean a Inönü-Wigner contraction in the underlying algebra?

You are aware of the 'problematic' relation between deSitter and SUGRA? E.g., have you tried (and failed :P ) to write down pure D=4,N=1 SUGRA on an AdS background?
