Affine extension of supersymmetric field theory
The affine extension of supergravity is investigated. We discuss only the loop algebra since the affine extension of the super-Poincaré algebra appears inconsistent. The construction of the affine supergravity theory has been carried out by the group manifold method and leads to an action describing infinite towers of gravitons and gravitinos that interact subject to the symmetries of the loop algebra. The equations of motion satisfy the usual consistency check.
