Gauge symmetry and supersymmetry of multiple M2-branes

- J. Bagger, N. Lambert
- Physics
- 6 November 2007

In previous work we proposed a field theory model for multiple M2-branes based on an algebra with a totally antisymmetric triple product. In this paper we gauge a symmetry that arises from the… Expand

Comments on multiple M2-branes

- J. Bagger, N. Lambert
- Physics
- 21 December 2007

Recently a three-dimensional field theory was derived that is consistent with all the symmetries expected of the worldvolume action for multiple M2-branes. In this note we examine several physical… Expand

Modeling multiple M2-branes

- J. Bagger, N. Lambert
- Physics
- 9 November 2006

We investigate the worldvolume theory that describes N coincident M2-branes ending on an M5-brane. We argue that the fields that describe the transverse spacetime coordinates take values in a… Expand

Three-algebras and N=6 Chern-Simons gauge theories

- J. Bagger, N. Lambert
- Physics
- 1 July 2008

We derive the general form for a three-dimensional scale-invariant field theory with $\mathcal{N}=6$ supersymmetry, $SU(4)$ R-symmetry and a $U(1)$ global symmetry. The results can be written in… Expand

M5-Branes, D4-Branes and quantum 5D super-Yang-Mills

- N. Lambert, C. Papageorgakis, M. Schmidt-Sommerfeld
- Physics
- 13 December 2010

We revisit the relation of the six-dimensional (2, 0) M5-brane Conformal Field Theory compactified on S1 to 5D maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills Gauge Theory. We show that in the broken phase 5D… Expand

Closed strings from decaying D-branes

- N. Lambert, Hong Liu, J. Maldacena
- Physics
- 14 March 2003

We compute the emission of closed string radiation from homogeneous rolling tachyons. For an unstable decaying Dp-brane the radiated energy is infinite to leading order for p ≤ 2 and finite for 2$>p… Expand

The Self-Dual String Soliton

- P. Howe, N. Lambert, P. West
- Physics
- 1 September 1997

We obtain a BPS soliton of the M-theory fivebrane's equations of motion representing a supersymmetric self-dual string. The resulting solution is then dimensionally reduced and used to obtain 0-brane… Expand

Membranes on an orbifold.

- N. Lambert, D. Tong
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 7 April 2008

We provide an M theory interpretation of the recently discovered N=8 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory with SO(4) gauge symmetry. The theory is argued to describe two membranes moving in the… Expand

Nonabelian (2,0) tensor multiplets and 3-algebras

- N. Lambert, C. Papageorgakis
- Physics
- 18 July 2010

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… Expand

A NEW MASSIVE TYPE IIA SUPERGRAVITY FROM COMPACTIFICATION

- P. Howe, N. Lambert, P. West
- Physics
- 15 July 1997

Abstract We consider a more general form for eleven dimensional supersymmetry which is still compatible with on-shell superfields. This allows for the introduction of a conformal Spin (1,10)… Expand
