N=2 Dilaton Weyl Multiplet in 5D Supergravity

Soumya Adhikari

IISER Thiruvananthapuram

A systematic off-shell reduction scheme from six to five
space-time dimensions is presented for maximally conformal supergravity
theories. The maximal conformal supergravity in six dimensions is N=(2,0)
which has 32 supercharges. We reduce this 6D theory to 5D by dimensional
reduction. The multiplet we get turns out to be a Dilaton Weyl multiplet as
it has a Dilaton scalar. We have constructed a vector multiplet in the N=2
conformal supergravity background in 5D. We also comment on Nahm's
classification regarding the existence of a superalgebra for the 5D N=2
Conformal supergravity. We will also comment on some future directions
regarding the construction of an invariant action for N=2 conformal
supergravity in five dimensions.
