Some Important Contributions:
 Kallosh, R.E., "The Renormalization in Nonabelian Gauge Theories," Nuclear Physics B78: 293 (1974).
One of the earliest papers on the background field method which is used extensively for
calculations in gauge field theories, in gravity and supergravity. The structure of 2loop divergence in pure gravity was
predicted in this paper.
 Kallosh, R.E., "Modified Feynman Rules in Supergravity," Nuclear Physics B141: 141 (1978).
Discovered that, in supergravity with open gauge algebra, the correct Feynman rules are different from the Feynman
rules in nonAbelian gauge theories. The FaddeevPopov ghosts acquire a 4ghost coupling and a third type of ghost,
later called the NielsonKallosh ghost, is required in loop diagrams.
 Kallosh, R.E., "Quantization of GreenSchwarz Superstring," Phys. Lett. B195:
369 (1987).
Discovered new phenomena in the quantization of kappasymmetric gauge theories  the infinite dimensional
reducibility related to nilpotent gauge symmetry operators, and suggested how to quantize such theories.
 Kallosh, R.E., A. Linda, T. Ort, A. Peet, and A. Van Proyen, "Supersymmetry as a Cosmic Censor," Phys. Rev. D46: 5278
(1992).
First detailed study of stringy supersymmetric BPS black holes, with various fractions of
supersymmetry unbroken. Arguments were presented that the BekensteinHawking entropy of such black holes i
protected by a supersymmetric nonrenormalization theorem.

Ferrara S., and R.E. Kallosh, "Supersymmetry and Attractors," Phys. Rev. D54: 1514 (1996).
Using the BekensteinHawkingrelation for the
entropy of a black hole,
gave a universal formula for the entropy of N=2 extremal black holes.
