Diffeomorphism Invariant Theories and Vector Supersymmetry
Abstract
Einstein gravity in the Palatini first order formalism is shown to possess a vector supersymmetry of the type encountered in the topological gauge theories. A peculiar feature of the gravitationel theory is the link of this vector supersymmetry with the field equation of motion of the FaddeevPopov ghost associated to diffeomorphism invariance.
