Maximal supersymmetry and exceptional groups
Paper i proceeding, 2010
The article is a tribute to my old mentor, collaborator and friend Murray Gell-Mann. In it I describe work by Pierre Raniond, Sung-Soo Kim and myself where we describe the N-8 Supergravity in the light-cone formalism. We show how the Cremmer-Julia E7(7) non-linear symmetry is implemented and how the full supermultiplet is a representation of the E7(7) symmetry. I also show how the E7(7) symmetry is a key to understand the higher order couplings in the theory and is very useful when we discuss possible counterterms for this theory.
