Supersymmetric Yang-Mills equations in \(10+2\) dimensions. (English) Zbl 1017.81514
Summary: We present a model for supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in \(10+2\) dimensions. Our construction uses a constant null vector, and leads to a consistent set of field equations and constraints. The model is invariant under generalized translations and an extra gauge transformation. Ordinary dimensional reduction to ten dimensions yields the usual supersymmetric Yang-Mills equations, while dimensional reduction to \(2+2\) yields supersymmetric Yang-Mills equations in which the Poincaré supersymmetry is reduced by a null vector. We also give the corresponding formulation in superspace.
