Abstract
We present two equivalent five-dimensional actions for six-dimensional (N,0 ) N = 1,2 supersymmetric theories of a self-dual tensor whose one spatial d imension is compactified on a circle. The Kaluza-Klein tower consists of a massless vector and an infinite number of massive self-dual tensor multiple ts living in five dimensions. The self-duality follows from the equation of motion. Both actions are quadratic in field variables without any auxiliar y field. When lifted back to six dimensions, one of them gives a supersymme tric extension of the bosonic formulation for the chiral two-form tensor by Perry and Schwarz.
