  author={Bartłomiej Czech and Yu-tin Huang and Moshe Rozali},
We study N = (N, 0) super-Poincaré invariant six-dimensional massless and five-dimensional massive on-shell amplitudes. We demonstrate that in six dimensions, all possible three-point amplitudes involving tensor multiplets are necessarily embedded in gravitational theories. For nongravitational amplitudes we consider instead five-dimensional massive amplitudes with N = (2, 0) supersymmetry, aiming at describing the world volume theory of multiple M5 branes compactified on M4,1 × S1. We find non…

5D Yang-Mills instantons from ABJM Monopoles

In the presence of a background supergravity flux, N M2-branes will expand via the Myers effect into M5-branes wrapped on a fuzzy three-sphere. In previous work the fluctuations of the M2-branes were

We consider the on-shell amplitudes in N=(1,1) SYM in D=6 dimensions within the spinor helicity and on-shell superspace formalism. This leads to an effective and straightforward technique reducing



Amplitudes of 3D and 6D maximal superconformal theories in supertwistor space

We use supertwistor space to construct scattering amplitudes of maximal superconformal theories in three and six dimensions. In both cases, the constraints of super-conformal invariance and

The BCFW recursion relations provide a powerful way to compute tree amplitudes in gauge theories and gravity, but only hold if some amplitudes vanish when two of the momenta are taken to infinity in
