We propose a complete, covariant and kappa–symmetric, action for an M–theory five– brane propagating in D = 11 supergravity background. PACS numbers: 11.15-q, 11.17+y

Quantifying the material properties of the human menisci is paramount to understanding their biomechanical functions within the knee. One important intrinsic material property governing the biomechanical functions of the meniscus is the circumferential tensile modulus. The purpose of this study was to determine if the circumferential tensile modulus of the… (More)

We present a manifestly Lorentz invariant and supersymmetric component field action for D = 10, type IIB supergravity, using a newly developed method for the construction of actions with chiral bosons, which implies only a single scalar non propagating auxiliary field. With the same method we construct also an action in which the complex two–form gauge… (More)

Starting from a manifestly Lorentz– and diffeomorphism–invariant classical action we perform a perturbative derivation of the gravitational anomalies for chiral bosons in 4n + 2 dimensions. The manifest classical invariance is achieved using a newly developed method based on a scalar auxiliary field and two new bosonic local symmetries. The resulting… (More)

The fields of the conjectured “heterotic” super–fivebrane sigma–model in ten dimensions are made out of a well known gravitational sector, the X and the θ, and of a still unknown heterotic sector which should be coupled to the Yang– Mills fields. We compute the one–loop d = 6 worldvolume and D = 10 target space Lorentz–anomalies which arise from the… (More)

Covariant actions for the bosonic fields of D=10 IIB supergravity are constructed with the help of a single auxiliary scalar field and in a formulation with an infinite series of auxiliary (anti)–self–dual 5-form fields. The construction of a complete action for chiral N = 2 (or IIB) supergravity in ten– dimensional space–time [1] is a long standing… (More)

We determine the two–dimensional Weyl, Lorentz and κ–anomalies in the D = 10 Green–Schwarz heterotic string sigma–model, in an SO(1, 9)-Lorentz covariant background gauge, and prove their cancellation. ∗ Supported in part by M.P.I. This work is carried out in the framework of the European Community Programme “Gauge Theories, Applied Supersymmetry and… (More)

We present a formulation of N = 1, D = 10 Supergravity–Super–Maxwell theory in superspace in which the graviphoton can be described by a 2–form B2 or a 6–form B6, the photon by a 1–form A1 or a 7–form A7 and the dilaton by a scalar φ or an 8–form φ8, the supercurvatures of these fields being related by duality. Duality interchanges Bianchi identities and… (More)

We construct an effective action describing an elementary M5–brane interacting with dynamical eleven–dimensional supergravity, which is free from gravitational anomalies. The current associated to the elementary brane is taken as a distribution valued δ–function on the support of the 5–brane itself. Crucial ingredients of the construction are the consistent… (More)

We show that the field equations for the supercoordinates and the self–dual antisymmetric tensor field derived from the recently constructed κ–invariant action for the M theory five-brane are equivalent to the equations of motion obtained in the doubly supersymmetric geometrical approach at the worldvolume component level.
