On the construction of an SU(8) charge in N=8 supergravity

A. Casher, D. Polarski

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The construction of a configuration of scalar fields leading to an SU(8) charge obeying Gauss's law at infinity is investigated. It is shown that the infrared behaviour of the charge does not allow an asymptotically flat spacetime, a fact that seems applicable to any non-linear, non-compact sigma model.
