Talk Title: "Superconformal Formulation of Supergravity"

Abstract:

Theories of Extended Supergravity have a superconformal formulation up to N=4. In the simplest N=1 case we give the local expression of the Supercurrent conservation. The latter is inherited from a curved superspace identity which is the supersymmetric version of the covariant conservation of the Einstein tensor of General Relativity.
