We introduce an antisymmetric metric into a 3-algebra and call it a symplectic 3-algebra. The , Sp(2N)×U(1) superconformal Chern–Simons-matter theory with SU(4) R-symmetry in three dimensions is constructed by specifying the 3-brackets in a symplectic 3-algebra. We also demonstrate that the , U(M)×U(N) theory can be recast into this symplectic 3-algebraic framework.
