  Articles discussing examples of Kaluza-Klein Reduction

+ 1 like - 0 dislike

The notes for my class on Kaluza-Klein reduction are a bit all over the place and at times it's difficult to follow what's going on. (I plan on asking a specific question about an example later).

For now, are there any resources that introduce Kaluza-Klein reduction with some worked examples, apart from the simple Minkowski space with a circle attached. I'd like to see some explicit examples where we have a higher dimensional torus for example.

A treatment including supergravity would be a plus.

How about any ol' string book: Compactifications are everywhere!

Did you had a look at this one KALUZA-KLEIN SUPERGRAVITY ? (and references therein)
