A new action for eleven-dimensional supergravity on a manifold with boundary is presented. The action is a possible low energy limit of M-theory. Previous problems with infinite constants in the action are overcome and a new set of boundary conditions relating the behaviour of the supergravity fields to matter fields are obtained. One effect of these boundary conditions is that matter fields generate gravitational torsion. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
