@article{Meissner2015StandardMF, title={Standard Model Fermions and N=8 supergravity}, author={Krzysztof A. Meissner and Hermann Nicolai}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2015}, volume={91}, pages={065029} }

In a scheme originally proposed by M. Gell-Mann, and subsequently shown to be realized at the SU(3)xU(1) stationary point of maximal gauged SO(8) supergravity by N. Warner and one of the present authors, the 48 spin 1/2 fermions of the theory remaining after the removal of eight Goldstinos can be identified with the 48 quarks and leptons (including right-chiral neutrinos) of the Standard Model, provided one identifies the residual SU(3) with the diagonal subgroup of the color group SU(3)_c and… Expand
