Recent success in understanding M2-brane Chern-Simons matter theories, like the ABJM or BLG model, has generated a renewed interest in understanding the holographic theory describing multiple M5-branes. The usual examples are the interacting (2,0) conformal field theory involvingchiral (self-dual) tensor fields. We would like to highlight a novel approach in constructing a local M5 brane action by using the Yang-Mills fields and an auxiliary U(1) field.
