Abstract: In this work, we study Lagrangian formulations for self-dual gauge theories,also known as chiral $n$-form gauge theories, for $n = 2p$ in $D = 4p+2$dimensional spacetime. Motivated by a recent formulation of M5-branes derivedfrom the BLG model, we generalize the earlier Lagrangian formulation based on adecomposition of spacetime into $D-1$ dimensions plus a special dimension, toconstruct Lagrangian formulations based on a generic decomposition of spacetimeinto $D-$ and $D- = D - D-$ dimensions. Although the Lorentz symmetry is notmanifest, we prove that the action is invariant under modified Lorentztransformations.
