ABSTRACT We show in the SU(1,1)-covariant formulation that IIB supergravity allows the introduction of a doublet and a quadruplet of ten-form potentials. The Ramond-Ramond ten-form potential which is associated with the SO(32) Type I superstring is in the quadruplet. Our results are consistent with a recently proposed $E_{11}$ symmetry underlying string theory. For the reader's convenience we present the full supersymmetry and gauge transformations of {\it all} fields both in the manifestly SU(1,1) covariant Einstein frame and in the real U(1) gauge fixed string frame. Comment: 36 pages; additional comments in section 7, typos corrected in formulae in sections 5 and 6, references added

    ABSTRACT: We show that the nonlinear realizations of all the very extended algebras G+++, except the B and C series which we do not consider, contain fields corresponding to all possible duality symmetries of the on-shell degrees of freedom of these theories. This result also holds for G+++2 and we argue that the nonlinear realization of this algebra accounts precisely for the form fields present in the corresponding supersymmetric theory. We also find a simple necessary condition for the roots to belong to a G+++ algebra.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we construct the supersymmetric tensor hierarchy of N = 1, d = 4 supergravity. We find some differences with the general bosonic construction of 4-dimensional gauged supergravities. The global symmetry group of N = 1, d = 4 supergravity consists of three factors: the scalar manifold isometry group, the invariance group of the complex vector kinetic matrix and the U(1) R-symmetry group. In contrast to (half)-maximal supergravities, the latter two symmetries are not embedded into the isometry group of the scalar manifold. We identify some components of the embedding tensor with Fayet-Iliopoulos terms and we find that supersymmetry implies that the inclusion of R-symmetry as a factor of the global symmetry group requires a non-trivial extension of the standard p-form hierarchy. This extension involves additional 3- and 4-forms. One additional 3-form is dual to the superpotential (seen as a deformation of the simplest theory). We study the closure of the supersymmetry algebra on all the bosonic p-form fields of the hierarchy up to duality relations. In order to close the supersymmetry algebra without the use of duality relations one must construct the hierarchy in terms of supermultiplets. Such a construction requires fermionic duality relations among the hierarchy's fermions and these turn out to be local.

    ABSTRACT: The distinguishing characteristic of the elliptic restricted three-body problem from that of the circular case is a pulsating potential field resulting in non-autonomous and non-integrable spacecraft dynamics, which are difficult to model using classical methods of analysis. The purpose of this study is to harness modern methods of analytical perturbation theory to normalize the system dynamics about the circular restricted three-body problem and about one of the triangular Lagrange points. The normalization is achieved through a canonical transformation of the system Hamiltonian function based on the Lie transform method introduced by Hori and Deprit in the 1960s. The classic method derives a near-identity transformation of a Hamiltonian function expanded about a single parameter such that the transformed system possesses ideal properties of integrability. One of the major contributions of this study is to extend the normalization method to two-parameter expansions and to non-autonomous Hamiltonian systems. The two-parameter extension is used to normalize the system dynamics of the elliptic restricted three-body problem such that the stability of the triangular Lagrange points may be determined using the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem. Further dynamical analysis is performed in the transformed phase space in terms of local integrals of motion akin to Jacobi's integral of the circular restricted three-body problem. The local phase space around the Lagrange point is foliated by invariant tori that effectively separate the planar dynamics into qualitative regions of motion. Additional analysis is presented for the incorporation of control into the normalization routine with the goal of eliminating the non-circular secular perturbations. The control method is validated on a test case and applied to the elliptic restricted three-body problem for the purposes of stabilizing the motion around the triangular Lagrange points.
