Working group 3: Super-Chern-Simons field theories, multiple M2 branes, BLG models and tri-algebras
Organizers: I. Bakas, S. Penati, D. Sorokin
Moderators: N. Lambert
Date, time, and location: Tuesday 10th 17:00h, AB auditorium (room 6-2-024)
It is planned to discuss the group-theoretical structure and
physical contents of different versions of
Bagger-Lambert-Gustavson-type models based on tri-algebras and a
related model due to Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena (ABJM).
These models have been suggested to provide an effective description
of multiple M2-branes of M-theory in terms of 3-dimensional
N-extended superconformal Chern-Simons gauge theories coupled to
scalar supermultiplets and serve as a basis for studying the
AdS_4/CFT_3 duality correspondence from the 3D field theory side.
