Kinematical superspaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We classify N =1 d = 4 kinematical and aristotelian Lie superalgebras with spa- tial isotropy, but not necessarily parity nor time-reversal invariance. Employing a quater- nionic formalism which makes rotational covariance manifest and simplifies many of the calculations, we find a list of 43 isomorphism classes of Lie superalgebras, some with pa- rameters, whose (nontrivial) central extensions are also determined. We then classify their corresponding simply-connected homogeneous (4|4)-dimensional superspaces, resulting in a list of 27 homogeneous superspaces, some with parameters, all of which are reductive. We determine the invariants of low rank and explore how these superspaces are related via geometric limits.
