    We consider the action, in arbitrary curved background, of the eleven-dimensional five-brane to second order in the curvature of the worldvolume tensor field. We show that this action gives upon double dimensional reduction the action of the Dirichlet four-brane up to the same order. We use this result as a starting point to discuss the structure of the action including terms of higher order in the worldvolume curvature.
