(2,0) Theory usually refers to a 6-dimensional conformal Quantum Field Theory which is the worldvolume theory of a stack of M5-branes, and which has (2,0) chiral supersymmetry.. It can also arise from Type IIB String Theory compactified on a K3 manifold with an ADE singularity. If the singularity is type A, the resulting field theory is the M5-brane worldvolume theory. It is not known how to obtain the (2,0) theories of type D and type E from M-Theory.[1]
