  • We study open supermembranes in 11-dimensional rigid superspace with 6-dimensional topological defects (M-theory five-branes). After rederiving in the Green-Schwarz formalism the boundary conditions for open superstrings in the type-IIA theory, we determine the boundary conditions for open supermembranes by imposing kappa symmetry and invariance under a fraction of 11-dimensional supersymmetry. The result seems to imply the self-duality of the three-form field strength on the five-brane world… CONTINUE READING
