M2-M5 brane bound state




bound states of M2-branes with M5-branes;

in particular dyonic\,black M2-branes, i.e. M5-branes wrapped on a 3-manifold (ILPT 95)


Image in type II string theory

Under suitable duality between M-theory and type IIA string theory the M2/M5brane bound states become Dp-D(p+2)-brane bound states (Basu-Harvey 05).

Reduction to Dpp-D(p+2)(p+2)-brane bound states

The lift of Dp-D(p+2)-brane bound states in string theory to M2-M5-brane bound states/E-strings in M-theory, under duality between M-theory and type IIA string theory+T-duality, via generalization of Nahm's equation (eventually motivating the BLG model/ABJM model):
