Supersymmetric 3-algebra theories in 6 dimensions

Regular Seminar Costis Papageorgakis (KCL)

14:00 IC
room H503

Using 3-algebras we obtain a nonabelian system of equations that furnish a representation of the (2,0)-supersymmetric tensor multiplet. The on-shell conditions are quite restrictive so that the system can be reduced to five-dimensional super-Yang-Mills theory along with six-dimensional abelian (2,0) tensor multiplets. Possible applications to D4-branes and M5-branes are discussed.
