    The cover page shows an event recorded with the CMS detector (LHC, CERN) in 2012 at a proton-proton centre of mass energy of 8 TeV. It shows characteristics expected from the decay of the standard model (SM) Higgs boson to a pair of photons (dashed yellow lines and green towers). The event could also be due to known SM background processes. (©: CERN, see

    The polynomial part of the Iwasawa realization of the coset representative of non compact symmetric Riemannian spaces is analysed. This allows computing the maximal degree of the polynomials for all faithful representations of Lie algebras. In particular the metric coefficients are related to the scalar kinetic terms while the representation of electric and magnetic charges is related to the coupling of scalars to vector field strengths appearing in the Lagrangian. Symmetric scalar manifolds in ��-extended supergravity in various space-time dimensions are considered, elucidating various relations with the underlying Jordan algebras and normed Hurwitz algebras.
