Abstract Until recently, the preferred strategy to identify stationary points in the scalar potential of SO(8)-gauged N=8 supergravity in D=4 has been to consider truncations of the potential to sub-manifolds of E7 _((+7))/SU(8) that are invariant under some postulated residual gauge group G ⊂SO(8). As powerful alternative strategies have been shown to exist that allow one to go far beyond what this method can achieve - and in particular have produced numerous solutions that... Title of program: e7-vacua Catalogue Id: AELB_v1_0 Nature of problem This code allows numerical validation of claims about the existence of critical points in the scalar potential of four-dimensional SO(8)-gauged N=8 supergravity.
