Abstract

A brief introduction to superembedding approach (SEA) in its variant based on the generalized action principle (GAP) for super-p-branes is given. A role of harmonic variables for Lorentz group is stressed. A relation of the GAP with complete superfield actions is noted. Recent applications in studying of Dirichlet branes (super-Dp-branes) and M-branes are discussed.
