Tuesday 5th December: STP Seminar – “An M5-Brane Model”

Title: An M5-Brane Model Speaker: Christian Sämann (Heriot-Watt University) Abstract: We show how to write an action for a classical six-dimensional superconfomal field theory containing a non-abelian tensor multiplet. All of the ingredients of this action have been available in… Read More
