Twisted cohomotopy implies twisted string structure on M5-branes

Domenico Fiorenza, Hisham Sati, Urs Schreiber

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that charge-quantization of the M-theory C-field in J-twisted Cohomotopy implies the emergence of a higher Sp(1)-gauge field on single heterotic M5-branes, which exhibits a worldvolume Stringc2-structure.
