D=5 super Yang-Mills theory

super Yang-Mills theory in dimension 5.

$D = 5$ 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).

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

Topological twists are considered in
