A bstractWe solve the Killing spinor equations of 6-dimensional (1,0) superconformal theories in all cases. In particular, we derive the conditions on the fields imposed by the Killing spinor equations and demonstrate that these depend on the isotropy group of the Killing spinors. We focus on the models proposed by Samtleben et al in [11, 12] and find that there are solutions preserving 1,2, 4 and 8 supersymmetries. We also explore the solutions which preserve 4 supersymmetries and find that… 

Brane solitons of (1, 0) superconformal theories in six dimensions with hyper-multiplets

We solve the Killing spinor equations of six-dimensional (1, 0) superconformal theories which include hyper-multiplets in all cases. We show that the solutions preserve 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8

Spinorial geometry, horizons and superconformal symmetry in six dimensions

The spinorial geometry method of solving Killing spinor equations is reviewed as it applies to six-dimensional (1,0) supergravity. In particular, it is explained how the method is used to identify

Six-dimensional (1,0) superconformal models and higher gauge theory

We analyze the gauge structure of a recently proposed superconformal field theory in six dimensions. We find that this structure amounts to a weak Courant-Dorfman algebra, which, in turn, can be

Non-abelian self-dual string solutions

A bstractWe consider the equations of motion of the non-abelian 5-branes theory recently constructed in [1] and find exact string solutions both for uncompactified and compactified spacetime.

Six-dimensional superconformal couplings of non-abelian tensor and hypermultiplets

A bstractWe construct six-dimensional superconformal models with non-abelian tensor and hypermultiplets. They describe the field content of (2, 0) theories, coupled to (1, 0) vector multiplets. The

Non-Abelian tensor towers and (2,0) superconformal theories

A bstractWith the aim to study six-dimensional (2, 0) superconformal theories with non-Abelian tensor multiplets we propose a five-dimensional superconformal action with eight supersymmetries for an

A bstractWe construct 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
