By using Dirac-Born-Infeld action we study the real time dynamics of D-branes in the vicinity of a stack of Dp-branes where the role of the tachyon of the open string models is played by the radial mode on the D-branes. We examine the behaviour of the tachyon potential and study the hamiltonian formulation and classical solutions of such systems. We also(More)
We study rolling radion dynamics of electrified D-brane in NS5-brane background, both in effective field theory and in full open string theory. We construct exact boundary states and, from them, extract conserved Noether currents. We argue that T-duality and Lorentz boost offer an intuitive approach. In the limit of large number of NS5-branes, both boundary(More)
We construct a family of supersymmetric solutions in time-dependent backgrounds in supergravity theories. One class of the solutions are intersecting brane solutions and another class are brane solutions in pp-wave backgrounds, and their intersection rules are also given. The relation to existing literature is also discussed. An example of D1-D5 with linear(More)
A class of time dependent pp-waves with NS-NS flux in type IIA string theory is considered. The background preserves 1/4 supersymmetry and may provide a toy model of Big Bang cosmology with non trivial flux. At the Big Bang singularity in early past, the string theory is strongly coupled and Matrix string model can be used to describe the dynamics. We also(More)
We study various configurations of rotating and wound D1-brane in AdS5×S background and in its β deformed version. We find giant magnon and spike solutions on the world-volume of D1-brane in AdS5× S5 background. We also analyse the equations of motion of D1-brane in β-deformed background. We show that in the limit of large electric flux on world-volume of(More)
We present two classes of brane solutions in pp-wave spacetime. The first class of branes with a rotation parameter are constructed in an exact string background with NS-NS and R-R flux. The spacetime supersymmetry is analyzed by solving the standard Killing spinor equations and is shown to preserve the same amount of supersymmetry as the case without the(More)
We study the homogeneous and time dependent dynamics of the supertube in diverse backgrounds. After deriving a general form of the Hamiltonian in general background, we use a particular gauge fixing, relevant to our analysis to derive a simpler Hamiltonian. We then study the homogeneous solutions of the equations of motion in various backgrounds and study(More)
