New Weyl Multiplet for Five-Dimensional Conformal Supergravity

In supersymmetric theories, particles come in “multiplets” related by supersymmetry transformations. Supersymmetry, once made local becomes supergravity, which naturally unites matter and gravity.

A recent work by Butter et al. has obtained a new type of supergravity multiplet by coupling a
supersymmetric Maxwell theory (described using a so-called vector multiplet) to conformal supergravity.

In this project we will study minimal supergravity in five dimensions (D = 5, N = 1).
As extensions of recent work by the supervisor of this project, the aim is to construct a new off-shell, field-theoretic representation of the gauged, minimal superconformal algebra in five dimensions based on the coupling with a multiplet to the supersymmetric analogue of the electron.
