Bosonic symmetries of $(2,0)$ DLCQ field theories.

Lambert, Neil and Lipstein, Arthur and Mouland, Rishi and Richmond, Paul (2020) 'Bosonic symmetries of $(2,0)$ DLCQ field theories.', Journal of high energy physics., 2020 (01). p. 166.


We investigate symmetries of the six-dimensional (2,0) theory reduced along a compact null direction. The action for this theory was deduced by considering M-theory on AdS7×S4 and reducing the AdS7 factor along a time-like Hopf fibration which breaks one quarter of the supersymmetry and reduces the isometry group from SO(6,2) to SU(3,1). The boundary theory was previously shown to have 24 supercharges and a Lifshitz scaling symmetry. In this paper, we show that it has four boost-like symmetries and an additional conformal symmetry which furnish a representation of SU(3,1) when combined with the other bosonic symmetries, providing a nontrivial check of the holographic correspondence.
