Boundary conditions for interacting membranes

We investigate supersymmetric boundary conditions in both the Bagger-Lambert and the ABJM theories of interacting membranes. We find boundary conditions associated to the fivebrane, the ninebrane and

Aspects of Supersymmetry in Multiple Membrane Theories

This thesis consists of two parts. In the first part we investigate the worldvolume supersymmetry algebra of multiple membrane theories. We begin with a description of M-theory branes and their

Boundary effects in super-Yang–Mills theory

In this paper, we shall analyze a three dimensional supersymmetry theory with $$\mathcal {N} = 2$$N=2 supersymmetry. We will analyze the quantization of this theory, in the presence of a boundary.

Supersymmetric Boundary Conditions in Three Dimensional N = 2 Theories

We study supersymmetric boundary conditions in three-dimensional N=2 Landau-Ginzburg models and Abelian gauge theories. In the Landau-Ginzburg model the boundary conditions that preserve (1,1)

Boundary effects in the BLG theory

In this paper, we will analyze a system of multiple M2-branes in between two M5-branes. This will be analyzed by studying Bagger–Lambert–Gustavsson (BLG) theory on a manifold with two boundaries. The

Supersymmetric boundaries and junctions in four dimensions

A bstractWe make a comprehensive study of (rigid) $ \mathcal{N} = {1} $ supersymmetric sigma-models with general Kähler potentials K and superpotentials w on four-dimensional space-times with

Supersymmetric Chern-Simons Theory in Presence of a Boundary in the Light-Like Direction

Abstract In this paper, we will analyze a three dimensional supersymmetric Chern–Simons theory on a manifold with a boundary. The boundary we will consider in this paper will be defined by n ⋅ x = 0

Singular BPS boundary conditions in N = (2, 2) supersymmetric gauge theories

We derive general BPS boundary conditions in two-dimensional N = (2, 2) supersymmetric gauge theories. We analyze the solutions of these boundary conditions, and in particular those that allow the

Topological M-Strings and Supergroup WZW Models

We study the boundary conditions in topologically twisted Chern-Simons matter theories with the Lie 3-algebraic structure. We find that the supersymmetric boundary conditions and the gauge invariant



Membranes on an orbifold.

An M theory interpretation of the recently discovered N=8 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory with SO(4) gauge symmetry is provided to describe two membranes moving in the orbifold R8/Z2.

Towards the quantum geometry of the M5-brane in a constant C-field from multiple membranes

We show that the Nahm equation which describes a fuzzy D3-brane in the presence of a B-field can be derived as a boundary condition of the F1-strings ending on the D3-brane, and that the

Comments on multiple M2-branes

Recently a three-dimensional field theory was derived that is consistent with all the symmetries expected of the worldvolume action for multiple M2-branes. In this note we examine several physical

Comments on the Bagger-Lambert theory and multiple M2-branes

We study the SO(8) superconformal theory proposed recently by Bagger and Lambert as a possible worldvolume theory for multiple M2-branes. For their explicit example with gauge group SO(4), we rewrite

The M2-M5 brane system and a generalized Nahm's equation

A Massive Study of M2-brane Proposals

We test the proposals for the worldvolume theory of M2-branes by studying its maximally supersymmetric mass-deformation. We check the simplest prediction for the mass-deformed theory on N M2-branes:

Open membranes, ribbons, and deformed schild strings

We analyze open membranes immersed in a magnetic three-form field-strength $C$. While cylindrical membranes in the absence of $C$ behave like tensionless strings, when the $C$ flux is present the
