Comments on superp-branes
We make some comments on superp-brane theories. In particular we emphasize the fact that there are Weyl invariant actions associated withp- branes. We note that such actions are classically equivalent to the usualp-brane actions. It seems that from the point of view of the Weyl invariant actions forp- branes only stringsp = 1) and terrons (p = 3) are the best candidates for a unified theory.
