D-branes, quivers, and ALE instantons

- M. Douglas, G. Moore
- Physics, Mathematics
- 26 March 1996

Effective field theories in type I and II superstring theories for D-branes located at points in the orbifold C^2/Z_n are supersymmetric gauge theories whose field content is conveniently summarized… Expand

Branes within branes

- M. Douglas
- Physics
- 12 December 1995

Superstring theory has a rich spectrum of solitonic states, and over the last years much has been learned about their important roles in the theory, in strong-weak coupling duality and in resolving… Expand

Noncommutative Geometry and Matrix Theory: Compactification on Tori

- A. Connes, M. Douglas, A. Schwarz
- Physics
- 20 November 1997

We study toroidal compactification of Matrix theory, using ideas and results of noncommutative geometry. We generalize this to compactification on the noncommutative torus, explain the classification… Expand

Chiral Rings and Anomalies in Supersymmetric Gauge Theory

- F. Cachazo, M. Douglas, N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 18 November 2002

Motivated by recent work of Dijkgraaf and Vafa, we study anomalies and the chiral ring structure in a supersymmetric U(N) gauge theory with an adjoint chiral superfield and an arbitrary… Expand

Orbifold resolution by D-branes

- M. Douglas, B. Greene, D. Morrison
- Physics
- 21 April 1997

Abstract We study topological properties of the D-brane resolution of three-dimensional orbifold singularities, C 3 /Λ , for finite abelian groups Λ. The D-brane vacuum moduli space is shown to fill… Expand

New Phenomena in SU(3) Supersymmetric Gauge Theory

- P. Argyres, M. Douglas
- Physics
- 10 May 1995

We show that four-dimensional N = 2 supersymmetric SU(N) gauge theory for N > 2 necessarily contains vacua with mutually non-local massless dyons, using only analyticity of the effective action and… Expand

Branes intersecting at angles

- M. Berkooz, M. Douglas, R. Leigh
- Physics
- 24 June 1996

Abstract We show that configurations of multiple D-branes related by SU(N) rotations will preserve unbroken supersymmetry. This includes cases in which two D-branes are related by a rotation of… Expand

A New Hat For The c=1 Matrix Model

- M. Douglas, I. Klebanov, D. Kutasov, J. Maldacena, E. Martinec, N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 21 July 2003

We consider two dimensional supergravity coupled to $\hat c=1$ matter. This system can also be interpreted as noncritical type 0 string theory in a two dimensional target space. After reviewing and… Expand

Distributions of flux vacua

- F. Denef, M. Douglas
- Physics
- 16 April 2004

We give results for the distribution and number of flux vacua of various types, supersymmetric and nonsupersymmetric, in IIB string theory compactified on Calabi-Yau manifolds. We compare this with… Expand

D-branes, categories and N=1 supersymmetry

- M. Douglas
- Mathematics, Physics
- 2 November 2000

We show that boundary conditions in topological open string theory on Calabi–Yau (CY) manifolds are objects in the derived category of coherent sheaves, as foreseen in the homological mirror symmetry… Expand
