Description

Conformal symmetry is the maximal spacetime symmetry. Supergravity plays an important role in the developments of quantum theories including gravity, as in superstring theory. Considering supergravity as a broken superconformal theory lead to many insights in the structure of supergravity. We review these developments and report on recent investigations on constrained multiplets, the Einstein equation and conserved currents in a supergravity theory from the conformal point of view.
