Super Yang-Mills and Division Algebras

It appears Duff et al have completely elucidated the relationship between division algebras and super Yang-Mills theories in D=3,4,6,10 dimensions.  All cases can be recovered from the division algebra pair (O, O), where O is the octonion division algebra, corresponding to D=10, N=1 super Yang-Mills.
