# Spherical transverse M5-branes in matrix theory

@article{Asano2017SphericalTM, title={Spherical transverse M5-branes in matrix theory}, author={Yuhma Asano and Goro Ishiki and Shinji Shimasaki and Seiji Terashima}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={96} }

It has been a long-standing problem how the transverse M5-branes are described in the matrix-model formulations of M-theory. We consider this problem for M-theory on the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave geometry, which admits transverse spherical M5-branes with zero light-cone energy. By using the localization, we directly analyze the strong coupling region of the corresponding matrix theory called the plane wave matrix model (PWMM). Under the assumption that the low energy modes of the scalar…
