  • Finite Euler hierarchies of field theory Lagrangians leading to universal equations of motion for new types of string and membrane theories and for classical topological field theories are constructed. The analysis uses two main ingredients. On the one hand, there exists a generic finite Euler hierarchy for one field leading to a universal equation which generalizes the Plebanski equation of self‐dual four‐dimensional gravity. On the other hand, specific maps are introduced between field… CONTINUE READING
