We review recent progress in the construction and classification of six-dimensional (1,0) superconformal models with non-abelian tensor fields. Here we solve the generalized Jacobi identities which are required for consistency of the non-abelian vector/tensor gauge system and we present a large class of explicit examples.

Brane solitons of (1, 0) superconformal theories in six dimensions with hyper-multiplets
We solve the Killing spinor equations of six-dimensional (1, 0) superconformal theories which include hyper-multiplets in all cases. We show that the solutions preserve 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8Expand
