Recently an action based on Lie 3-algebras was proposed to describe M2-branes. We study the case of infinite dimensional Lie 3-algebras based on the Nambu-Poisson structure of three dimensional manifolds. We show that the model contains self-dual 2-form gauge fields in 6 dimensions, and the result may be interpreted as the M5-brane world-volume action. 
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
M-Theory Superalgebra From Multiple Membranes
We investigate space-time supersymmetry of the model of multiple M2-branes proposed by Bagger-Lambert and Gustavsson. When there is a central element in Lie 3-algebra, the model possesses an extra
BLG and M5
We discuss the interpretation of the three-dimensional N = 8 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theory with the gauge group of volume preserving diffeomorphisms as a model describing a
Mass deformation of the multiple M2-branes theory
Based on recent developments, in this paper we study the one parameter deformation of 2+1-dimensional gauge theories with scale invariance and $\mathcal{N} = 8$ supersymmetry, which is expected to be
A Concise Review on M5-brane in Large C-Field Background
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
On effective action of multiple M5-branes and ABJM action
We calculate the fluctuations from the classical multiple M5-brane solution of ABJM action which we found in the previous paper. We obtain D4-brane-like action but the gauge coupling constant depends
The dual formulation of M5-brane action
A bstractWe construct a dual formulation, with respect to the conventional PST formalism, of the M5-brane action propagating in a generic 11d supergravity background. Constraint analysis is performed
M2-brane superalgebra from Bagger-Lambert theory
It is known that the M2-brane worldvolume superalgebra includes two p-form central charges that encode the M-theory intersections involving M2-branes. In this paper we show by explicit computation
Algebraic form of the M3-brane action
We reformulate the bosonic action of an unstable M3-brane to manifest its algebraic representation. It is seen that in contrast to string and M2-brane actions, which are respectively represented only
On M5-branes in N=6 Membrane Action
In this note we study M5-branes in the multiple membrane action which is recently proposed by Aharony-Bergman-Jafferis-Maldacena. We write down the = 6 supersymmetry transformation of the action and
