@article{Heydeman2017M5braneAD, title={M5-brane and D-brane scattering amplitudes}, author={Matthew Heydeman and John H. Schwarz and Congkao Wen}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2017}, volume={2017}, pages={1-49} }

A bstractWe present tree-level n-particle on-shell scattering amplitudes of various brane theories with 16 conserved supercharges. These include the world-volume theory of a probe D3-brane or D5-brane in 10D Minkowski spacetime as well as a probe M5-brane in 11D Minkowski spacetime, which describes self interactions of an abelian tensor supermultiplet with 6D (2, 0) supersymmetry. Twistor-string-like formulas are proposed for tree-level scattering amplitudes of all multiplicities for each of…

It is proposed that universal double-soft behavior is not only true for scalars, but also for spin-1/2 particles in four dimensions and fermions in three dimensions, and that amplitudes in 4≤N≤8 supergravity theories in four dimension as well as N=16 supergravity in three dimension behave universally in the double- soft-fermion limit, analogous to the scalar ones.
