# Understanding what SuperGravity is

In theoretical physics, supergravity is a modern field theory that combines the principles of supersymmetry and general relativity, in contrast to non-gravitational supersymmetric theories such as the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Supergravity is the gauge theory of local supersymmetry. Since the supersymmetry (SUSY) generators form together with the Poincare Algebra a Superalgebra, called the super-Poincare algebra, supersymmetry a gauge theory makes gravity arise in a … Continue reading Understanding what SuperGravity is
