Conformal theory of M2, D3, M5 and `D1+D5' branes
Abstract
The bosonic actions for M2, D3 and M5 branes in their own ddimensional nearhorizon background are given in a manifestly SO(p+1,2) × SO(dp1) invariant form (p = 2,3,5). These symmetries result from a breakdown of ISO(d,2) (with d = 10 for D3 and d = 11 for M2 and M5) symmetry by the WessZumino term and constraints. The new brane actions, reduce after gaugefixing and solving constraints to (p+1) dimensional interacting field theories with a nonlinearly realized SO(p+1,2) conformal invariance. We also present an interacting twodimensional conformal field theory on a Dstring in the nearhorizon geometry of a D1+D5 configuration.
