# Holographic M5 branes in $AdS_7\times S^4$

@inproceedings{Gupta2021HolographicMB, title={Holographic M5 branes in \$AdS\_7\times S^4\$}, author={Varun Gupta}, year={2021} }

We study classical M5 brane solutions in the probe limit in the AdS7 × S4 background geometry that preserve the minimal amount of supersymmetry. These solutions describe the holography of codimension-2 defects in the 6d boundary dual N = (0, 2) supersymmetric gauge theories. The general solution is described in terms of holomorphic functions that satisfy a scaling condition. We show the behavior of the world-volume of a special class of BPS solutions near the AdS boundary region can be… Expand

We study supersymmetric branes in AdS7 × S4 and AdS4 × S7. We show that in the former case the membranes should be viewed as M5 branes with fluxes and we identify two types of such fivebranes (they… Expand
