  title={M-theory from Its Superalgebra Carg{\`e}se Lectures 1997},
  author={Paul K. Townsend},

These lectures explore what can be learnt about M-theory from its superalgebra. The first three lectures introduce the 'basic' branes of M-theory, and Type II superstring theories, and show how the duality relations between them are encoded in the respective spacetime superalgebras. The fourth lecture introduces brane intersections and explains how they are encoded in the worldvolume superalgebras. About twenty years ago, it was pointed out that D=11 is the maximum dimension in which one can… CONTINUE READING
