A Systematic Approach to Consistent Truncations of Supergravity Theories

Abstract : Exceptional generalised geometry is a reformulation of eleven/ten-dimensional supergravity that unifies ordinary diffeomorphisms and gauge transformations of the higher-rank potentials of the theory in an extended notion of diffeormorphisms. These features make exceptional generalised geometry a very powerful tool to study consistent truncations of eleven/ten-dimensional supergravities. In this article, we review how the notion of generalised G-structure allows us to derive consistent truncations to supergravity theories in various dimensions and with different amounts of supersymmetry. We discuss in detail the truncations of eleven-dimensional supergravity to N=4 and N=2 supergravity in five dimensions.
