@article{Lee2008TopologicalTO, title={Topological Twisting of Multiple M2-brane Theory}, author={Kanghoon Lee and Sangmin Lee and Jeong-Hyuck Park}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2008}, volume={2008}, pages={014-014} }

Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson theory with infinite dimensional gauge group has been suggested to describe M5-brane as a condensation of multiple M2-branes. Here we perform a topological twisting of the Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson theory. The original SO(8) R-symmetry is broken to SO(3) × SO(5), where the former may be interpreted as a diagonal subgroup of the Euclidean M5-brane world-volume symmetry SO(6), while the latter is the isometry of the transverse five directions. Accordingly the resulting…
