Abstract

We derived the component Lagrangian for the free N-extended on-shell massless higher spin supermultiplets in four-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. The construction was based on the frame-like description of massless integer and half-integer higher spin fields. The massless supermultiplets were formulated for N ≤ 4k, where k is a maximal integer or half-integer spin in the multiplet. The supertransformations that leave the Lagrangian invariant were found in explicit form and it was shown that their algebra is closed on-shell.
