Abstract

We derive the action for nL≥1 chiral spinor multiplets coupled to vector and scalar multiplets. We give the component form of the action, which contains gauge invariant mass terms for the antisymmetric tensors in the spinor superfield and additional Green–Schwarz couplings to vector fields. We observe that supersymmetry provides mass terms for the scalars in the spinor multiplet that do not arise from eliminating an auxiliary field. We construct the dual action by explicitly performing the duality transformations in superspace and give its component form.
