The pioneering paper by Dmitry Volkov et al. examined the symmetry transformation with fermion as a parameter of the transformation. Nowadays, such symmetry is called “supersymmetry”. Fermionic massless particle with spin 1/2  goldstino – appears after spontaneous breaking of the symmetry In the paper [1 ] authors proposed a nonlinear Lagrangian for goldstino. Authors considered neutrino (see, e.g. the title of the paper [1]) as a candidate for the role of goldstino, because at the time of publication neutrino was believed to be massless. Although now we are confident that the neutrino is not goldstino , this does not diminish the value of paper [1]. In this paper nonlinear supersymmetric theory was developed in the fourdimensional space – time. It was done for the second time in the world literature ( after the article by Gol'fand and Likhtman published in JETP Letters in the year 1971 ). It is shown in the paper [2] that the massless particle with spin 3/2 ( gravitino  spinor partner of the graviton), arising due to the localization of fermionic transformation , absorbs goldstino and obtains the mass. This is what is now called superhiggs effect . This paper is the first publication about supergravity in the world literature [1] VOLKOV D.V., AKULOV V.P., JETP LETTERS 16, 438 (1972) [2] VOLKOV D.V., SOROKA V.A., JETP LETTERS 18, 529 (1973)
