M2/M5 systems and 5d SYM

Papageorgakis, C (Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey)
Thursday 01 March 2012, 11:30-12:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


The six-dimensional (2,0) M5-brane CFT was recently conjectured to be obtainable as the strong-coupling limit of five-dimensional, maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. In this talk we will first review the arguments leading to this claim. We will then present new evidence in its favour through the study of the M2/M5 bound state, which provides an M-theoretic realisation of the Myers brane-polarisation effect.
