Counterterms in Extended Supergravities

  • R. E. Kallosh


The purpose of this talk is, firstly, to describe the situation with ultraviolet divergences in supergravity and, secondly, to present the quantization of gauge theories with open algebras in the representation with the third ghost. This latter work was performed by I. Batalin and R. Kallosh.1
