Abstract

Within the framework of (2,0) anti-de Sitter (AdS) supersymmetry in three dimensions, we propose a multiplet of higher-spin currents. Making use of this supercurrent, we construct two off-shell gauge formulations for a massless multiplet of half-integer superspin (s+[Formula presented]), for every integer s>0. In the s=1 case, one formulation describes the linearised action for (2,0) anti-de Sitter supergravity, while the other gives the type III minimal supergravity action in (2,0) AdS superspace, with both linearised supergravity actions originally derived in arXiv:1109.0496. We formulate topologically massive higher-spin supermultiplets in (2,0) AdS superspace. Our results admit a natural extension to the case of S3.
