Towards an extended/higher correspondence
Abstract In this short paper, we will review the proposal of a correspondence between the doubled geometry of Double Field Theory and the higher geometry of bundle gerbes. Double Field Theory is
Two-Component Spinorial Formalism Using Quaternions for Six-Dimensional Spacetimes
In this article we construct and discuss several aspects of the two-component spinorial formalism for six-dimensional spacetimes, in which chiral spinors are represented by objects with two
Twistorial cohomotopy implies Green–Schwarz anomaly cancellation
We characterize the integral cohomology and the rational homotopy type of the maximal Borel-equivariantization of the combined Hopf/twistor fibration, and find that subtle relations satisfied by the
The Puzzle of Global Double Field Theory: Open Problems and the Case for a Higher Kaluza‐Klein Perspective
The history of the geometry of Double Field Theory is the history of string theorists' effort to tame higher geometric structures. In this spirit, the first part of this paper will contain a brief


Super-exceptional geometry: origin of heterotic M-theory and super-exceptional embedding construction of M5
In the quest for the mathematical formulation of M-theory, we consider three major open problems: a first-principles construction of the single (abelian) M5-brane Lagrangian density, the origin of
Towards an M5-brane model I: A 6d superconformal field theory
We present an action for a six-dimensional superconformal field theory containing a non-abelian tensor multiplet. All of the ingredients of this action have been available in the literature. We bring
Hidden gauge structure of supersymmetric free differential algebras
A bstractThe aim of this paper is to clarify the role of the nilpotent fermionic generator Q′ introduced in [6] and appearing in the hidden supergroup underlying the free differential algebra (FDA)
Magnetic Quivers, Higgs Branches, and 6d N=(1,0) Theories
M5 branes on a D-type ALE singularity display various phenomena that introduce additional massless degrees of freedom. The M5 branes are known to fractionate on a D-type singularity. Whenever two
M-theory from the superpoint
The “brane scan” classifies consistent Green–Schwarz strings and membranes in terms of the invariant cocycles on super Minkowski spacetimes. The “brane bouquet” generalizes this by consecutively
Vacuum Constraints for Realistic Heterotic M-Theories
The compactification from the 11-dimensional Horava-Witten orbifold to 5-dimensional heterotic M-theory on a Schoen Calabi-Yau threefold is reviewed, as is the specific $SU(4)$ vector bundle leading
On heterotic orbifolds, M theory and type I' brane engineering
Horava-Witten M theory↔ heterotic string duality poses special problems for the twisted sectors of heterotic orbifolds. In our previous paper [1] we explained how in M theory the twisted states
M-theory reconstruction from (2,0) CFT and the chiral algebra conjecture
A bstractWe study various aspects of the M-theory uplift of the AN −1 series of (2, 0) CFTs in 6d, which describe the worldvolume theory of N M5 branes in flat space. We show how knowledge of OPE
