Title: The role of PSL(2,7) in M-theory: Englert equation and the septuples.

Abstract: We consider M2-brane solutions of D=11 Supergravity with Englert fluxes. From the appropriate embedding of PSL(2,7) into the Weyl group of E7 follows an algorithm based on Fano planes and the classification of Steiner and non Steiner septuples of triplets to construct solutions of Englert equation. The resulting M2-branes have a rich variety of preserved supersymmetries.
