Abstract

In this chapter we would like to build models of elementary particle interactions using the ideas developed in the previous chapter. To summarize the discussion we note that the general action that couples supergravity (N = 1) to the Yang-Mills matter field system can be written as follows:
$$ \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {{{S}_{{eff}}} = {{{\int {{{d}^{4}}x\,e\left( {f\left( {S,{{e}^{{gV}}}{{s}^{\dag }}} \right){{\sum }^{*}}\sum } \right)} }}_{D}} + \int {{{d}^{4}}xe{{{\left( {g\left( S \right){{\sum }^{3}}} \right)}}_{F}} + h.c.} } \\ { + \int {{{d}^{4}}x\,e} {{{\left( {{{f}_{{\alpha \beta }}}\left( S \right){{W}^{{\alpha ,a}}}W_{a}^{\beta }} \right)}}_{F}} + h.c.,} \\ \end{array} $$
(15.1.1)
where S and V denote the matter and gauge fields, respectively, and D and F denote the generalized D- and F-terms invariant under local supersymmetry transformations defined in eqns. (14.7.9) and (14.7.10), respectively.
