We give a concise review of recent developments of the M5-brane theory derived from the Bagger-Lambert model. It is a 6 dimensional supersymmetric self-dual gauge theory describing an M5-brane in a large constant $C$-field background. The non-Abelian gauge symmetry corresponds to diffeomorphisms preserving an exact 3-form on the worldvolume, which defines a Nambu-Poisson bracket. Various interesting geometric and algebraic properties of the theory are discussed. 

BPS states on M5-brane in large C-field background

A bstractWe extensively study BPS solutions of the low energy effective theory of M5- brane in large C-field background. This provides us an opportunity to explore the interactions turned on by

The M5-brane action revisited

A bstractWe construct an alternative form of the M5-brane action in which the sixdimensional worldvolume is subject to a covariant split into 3+3 directions by a triplet of auxiliary fields. We

The purpose of this paper is to understand the low energy effective theory ofa Dp-brane in the background of a large constant R-R (p − 1)-form field. We start with the M5-brane theory in large

Non-Abelian Chiral 2-Form and M5-Branes

We first review self-dual (chiral) gauge field theories by studying their Lorentz non-covariant and Lorentz covariant formulations. We next construct a non-Abelian self-dual two-form gauge theory in

Non-linearly extended self-dual relations from the Nambu-bracket description of M5-brane in a constant C-field background

The derivation of the self-dual relations for the two-form gauge field in the Nambu-bracket description of M5-brane in a constant C-field background initiated in ref. [1] is completed by including

Supersymmetry and BPS states on D4-brane in large C-field background

A bstractIn this paper, we continue our previous study of the low energy effective theory for D4-brane in the large C-field background. The gauge field part of the effective action was found in an

Branes from a non-Abelian (2,0) tensor multiplet with 3-algebra

In this paper, we study the equations of motion for non-Abelian tensor multiplets in six dimensions, which were recently proposed by Lambert and Papageorgakis. Some equations are regarded as



Comments on multiple M2-branes

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

Light-cone M5 and multiple M2-branes

We present the light-cone gauge fixed Lagrangian for the M5-brane; it has a residual ‘exotic’ gauge invariance with the group of 5-volume preserving diffeomorphisms, SDiff5, as gauge group. For an

D-branes and Deformation Quantization

In this note we explain how world-volume geometries of D-branes can be reconstructed within the microscopic framework where D-branes are described through boundary conformal field theory. We extract

Lie 3-Algebra and Multiple M2-branes

Motivated by the recent proposal of an N = 8 supersymmetric action for multiple M2-branes, we study the Lie 3-algebra in detail. In particular, we focus on the fundamental identity and the relation

Gauge symmetry and supersymmetry of multiple M2-branes

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

Covariant Action for the Super-Five-Brane of M Theory

We propose a complete, d=6 covariant and kappa-symmetric, action for the M theory five-brane propagating in D=11 supergravity background. This opens a direct way of relating a wide class of super-p

M5-brane in three-form flux and multiple M2-branes

We investigate the Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson model associated with the Nambu-Poisson algebra as a theory describing a single M5-brane. We argue that the model is a gauge theory associated with the
