D=5 super Yang-Mills theory

Contents

Idea

super Yang-Mills theory in dimension 5.

Properties

As the worldvolume theory of the D4-brane

D=5D = 5 SYM may be regarded as the worldvolume theory on the D4-brane in type II string theory. Thought to be obtained via double dimensional reduction form the 6d (2,0)-superconformal QFT on the worldvolume of the M5-brane (Witten 11, section 4 and 5).

References

The theory was introduced/discussd as the double dimensional reduction of the 6d (2,0)-superconformal QFT on the M5-brane in sections 4 and 5 of
