We present two derivations of the multiple D2 action from the multiple M2brane model proposed by Bagger-Lambert and Gustavsson. The first one is to start from Lie 3-algebra associated with givenâ€¦ (More)

We study supersymmetry breaking caused by branes on anti-de Sitter space and obtain conditions for brane configuration not to break too many supersymmetries. Using the conditions, we construct aâ€¦ (More)

There is a longstanding puzzle concerned with the existence of Ã•p âˆ’ planes with p â‰¥ 6, which are orientifold p-planes of negative charge with stuck Dp-branes. We study the consistency ofâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson model associated with the Nambu-Poisson algebra as a theory describing a single M5-brane. We argue that the model is a gauge theory associated with theâ€¦ (More)

We calculate baryon mass in N = 4 large N gauge theory by means of AdS/CFT correspondence, and find that phase transitions occur when temperature or theta angle takes a critical value. Furthermore,â€¦ (More)

We study four kinds of 1/4 BPS solutions in massive IIA supergravity corresponding to D8-D0-F1, D8-D2, D8-D4 and D8-D6-NS5 systems. We show that these solutions are reproduced without supposingâ€¦ (More)

We re-interpret the anomaly cancellation conditions for the gauge symmetries and the baryonic flavor symmetries in quiver gauge theories realized by the brane tilings from the viewpoint of fluxâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the relation between gauge theories and brane configurations described by brane tilings. We identify U(1)B (baryonic), U(1)M (mesonic), and U(1)R global symmetries in gauge theoriesâ€¦ (More)

We give relations between type 0 and type II D-brane configurations under Tduality suggested by Bergman and Gaberdiel and confirm that massless fields on D-branes are identical to ones on the dualâ€¦ (More)
