New superconformal models in six dimensions

Triangular Seminar Henning Samtleben (ENS Lyon)

room Edmond J Safra Lecture Theatre

I review the recent construction of six-dimensional (1,0) superconformal models with non-abelian gauge couplings for multiple tensor multiplets. A crucial ingredient in the construction is the introduction of higher-rank tensor fields. I discuss various examples and the possible relation to the (2,0) theories underlying the dynamics of multiple M5 branes.
