On Flux Quantization in M-theory and the Effective Action

  title={On Flux Quantization in M-theory and the Effective Action},
  author={Edward H Witten},
The quantization law for the antisymmetric tensor field of M-theory contains a grav-itational contribution not known previously. When it is included, the low energy effective action of M-theory, including one-loop and Chern-Simons contributions, is well-defined.
