DESCRIPTION:M5-branes are 5+1 dimensional objects in M-theory.
Putting N M5-branes together\, a 6d CFT was predi
cted with N^3^ degrees of freedom\, very different
from N D-branes hosting N^2^ degrees of Yang-Mill
s theories. Their novel properties are observed mo
stly by indirect methods rather than 6d QFT calcul
ations\, due to the lack of its microscopic formul
ations. Curiously\, the mere existence of this bra
ne and CFT leads to nontrivial predictions on lowe
r dimensional QFT's\, like the compactification of
string/M-theory leading to a variety of interesti
ng quantum systems. In this talk\, after a review\
, I will briefly explain recent studies on a class
of interesting observables in this 6d QFT\, from
exact calculations in 5 dimensional super Yang-Mil
ls theory.
