Résumé

Becchi-Rouet-Stora transformations are obtained for the following systems: (i) Pure Einstein gravity in first order form with vierbein and spin connection as independent fields. (ii) First order Einstein gravity coupled to Yang-Mills fields. (iii) Pure supergravity. For the first two systems the results are as in Yang-Mills theory. But for conventional supergravity the BRS transformations leave the effective action invariant only if the classical equations of motion are satisfied. New transformations of the gauge fields of supergravity have been proposed under which the supersymmetry algebra closes. The corresponding BRS transformations do leave the effective action invariant without the need to use the classical equation of motion; moreover, as in Yang-Mills theories, they are nilpotent and have unit Jacobian.
