Democratic actions for type II supergravities

Karapet Mkrtchyan, Fridrich Valach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a universal democratic Lagrangian for the bosonic sector of ten-dimensional type II supergravities, treating "electric"and "magnetic"potentials of all Ramond-Ramond (RR) fields on equal footing. For type IIB, this includes the five-form whose self-duality equation is derived from the Lagrangian. We also present an alternative form of the action for type IIB, with manifest SL(2,R) symmetry.
