We investigate supersymmetric tubular configurations in the matrix theory. We construct a host of BPS configurations of eight supersymmetries. They can be regarded as cylindrical D2 branes carrying nonvanishing angular momentum. For the simplest tube, the world volume can be described as noncommutative tube and the world volume dynamics can be identified as(More)
We consider the matrix model associated with pp-wave background and construct supersymmetric branes. In addition to the spherical membrane preserving 16 supersymmetries, one may construct rotating elliptic membranes preserving 8 supersymmetries. The other branch describes rotating 1/8 BPS hyperbolic branes in general. When the angular momentum vanishes, the(More)
We consider the maximal supersymmetric pure Yang-Mills theories on six and eight dimensional space. We determine, in a systematic way, all the possible fractions of supersymmetry preserved by the BPS states and present the corresponding 'self-dual' BPS equations. In six dimensions the intrinsic one has 1/4 supersymmetry, while in eight dimensions, 1/16,(More)
We consider the noncommutative Abelian-Higgs theory and construct new type of exact multi-vortex solutions that solve the static equations of motion. They in general do not follow from the BPS equations; only for some specific values of parameters, they satisfy the BPS equations saturating the Bogomol’nyi bound. We further consider the Abelian-Higgs theory(More)
We find a class of flat supersymmetric brane-antibrane configurations. They follow from ordinary brane-antibrane systems by turning on a specific worldvolume background electric field, which corresponds to dissolved fundamental strings. We have clarified in detail how they arise and identified their constituent charges as well as the corresponding(More)
We consider the noncommutative Abelian-Higgs theory and investigate general static vortex configurations including recently found exact multi-vortex solutions. In particular, we prove that the self-dual BPS solutions cease to exist once the noncommutativity scale exceed a critical value. We then study the fluctuation spectra about the static configuration(More)
We consider the flat supersymmetric D2 and anti-D2 system, which follows from ordinary noncommutative D2 anti-D2 branes by turning on an appropriate worldvolume electric field describing dissolved fundamental strings. We study the strings stretched between D2 and anti-D2 branes and show explicitly that the would-be tachyonic states become massless. We(More)
