Idea

The KK-compactification of 11-dimensional supergravity/M-theory on Calabi-Yau manifold fibers.

On CY 3CY_3

For CY fibers of complex dimension 6, this yields the strong coupling version of CY-compactification of type II string theory/type II supergravity (see supersymmetry and Calabi-Yau manifolds).

Leads to 5d supergravity effective field theory.

See at 5d supergravity the section Via KK-Compactification of 11d Supergravity
