M2/M5 systems and 5d SYM

Thursday 1st March 2012 - 11:30 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
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.
