Topological branes, p-algebras and generalized Nahm equations
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Physics, Department of Physics and Astronomy.
2009 (English)In: Physics Letters B, ISSN 0370-2693, E-ISSN 1873-2445, Vol. 672, no 4-5, 390-395 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Inspired by the recent advances in multiple M2-brane theory, we consider the generalizations of Nahm equations for arbitrary p-algebras. We construct the topological p-algebra quantum mechanics associated to them and we show that this can be obtained as a truncation of the topological p-brane theory previously studied by the authors. The resulting topological p-algebra quantum mechanics is discussed in detail and the relation with the M2-M5 system is pointed out in the p = 3 case, providing a geometrical argument for the emergence of the 3-algebra structure in the Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson theory.
