Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and Mtheory
I will talk about a recent construction for an action for nonabelian 2form in 6dimensions. The action consists of a nonabelian generalization of the abelian action of Perry and Schwarz for a single M5brane. It admits a selfduality equation on the field strength as the equation of motion. It has a modified 6d Lorentz symmetry. On dimensional reduction on a circle, our action gives the standard 5d YangMills action. Based on these properties, we propose that our theory describes a theory of multiple M5branes in flat space.
