Abstract

We derive the free Osp(8|4) singleton action by sending the M2 brane to the Minkowski boundary of an AdS 4×M 7 background. We do this by means of the solvable Lie algebra parametrization of the coset space. We also give some comments on singleton actions from membranes on AdS 4×G/H backgrounds.
