A possible way of defining M theory as the CS theory for the supergroup OSp(1|32) × OSp(1|32) is investigated, based on the approach by Horava in hep-th/9712130. In the high energy limit (expansion in M), where only the highest (R) terms survive in the action, the supergroup contracts to the D’Auria-Fre M theory supergroup. Then the contracted equations of motion are solved by the usual 11d supergravity equations of motion, linearized in everything but the vielbein. These two facts suggest that… CONTINUE READING
