We study D-branes in SU (2) WZW model by means of the boundary state techniques. We realize the " fuzzy sphere " configuration of multiple D0-branes as the boundary state with the insertion of suitable Wilson line. By making use of the path-integral representation we show that this boundary state preserves the appropriate boundary conditions and leads to… (More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated the hypothesis that ceftriaxone preconditioning ameliorates brain damage in neonatal animals through glutamate transporter 1 (GLT-1) upregulation. STUDY DESIGN Sprague Dawley rats were pretreated with ceftriaxone, erythromycin, minocycline, or saline for 5 consecutive days starting from postnatal day 2 (P2), and… (More)
Therapeutic hypothermia is recommended for moderate and severe neonatal encephalopathy, but is being applied to a wider range of neonates than originally envisaged. To examine the clinical use of therapeutic hypothermia, data collected during the first 3 years (2012-2014) of the Baby Cooling Registry of Japan were analysed. Of 485 cooled neonates, 96.5%… (More)
We study a brane-antibrane system and a non-BPS D-brane in SU (2) WZW model. We first discuss the tachyon condensation using the vertex operator formalism and find the generation of codimension two D-branes after the condensation. Our result is consistent with the recent interpretation that a D2-brane is a bound state of D0-branes. Then we investigate the… (More)
We extend the construction of the boundary states in Gepner models to the non-diagonal modular invariant theories. Our construction includes all the known Gepner models. We also investigate the relation between the microscopic charges of the boundary states and Ramond charges of the B-type D-branes on the Calabi-Yau threefolds with one Kähler modulus in the… (More)
We study superstring propagations on the Calabi-Yau manifold which develops an isolated ADE singularity. This theory has been conjectured to have a holographic dual description in terms of N = 2 Landau-Ginzburg theory and Liouville theory. If the Landau-Ginzburg description precisely reflects the information of ADE singularity, the should give the same… (More)
We study D-branes in Kazama-Suzuki models by means of the boundary state description. We can identify the boundary states of Kazama-Suzuki models with the soli-tons in N = 2 Landau-Ginzburg theories. We also propose a geometrical interpretation of the boundary states in Kazama-Suzuki models.
