WG3: M2-brane actions

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.
