The occupied and unoccupied fermionic BPS quantum states of a type-IIA string stretched between a D6-brane and an orthogonal D2-brane are described in M-theory by two particular holomorphic curves embedded in a Kaluza-Klein monopole. The absence of multiply-occupied fermionic states - the Pauli exclusion principle - is manifested in M-theory by the absence of any other holomorphic curves satisfying the necessary boundary conditions. Stable, non-BPS states with multiple strings joining the D6… 
Compactification and Identification of Branes in the Kaluza-Klein monopole backgrounds
We study the properties of branes in supergravity theory. We investigate a class of systems consisting of an M5-brane in the Kaluza-Klein monopole background with 1/4 supersymmetry in 11-dimensions.
The 's-rule' exclusion principle and vacuum interpolation in worldvolume dynamics
We show how the worldvolume realization of the Hanany-Witten effect for a supersymmetric D5-brane in a D3 background also provides a classical realization of the `s-rule' exclusion principle. Despite
Quantum quivers and Hall / hole halos
Two pictures of BPS bound states in Calabi-Yau compactifications of type II string theory exist, one as a set of particles at equilibrium separations from each other, the other as a fusion of
Half branes, singular brane intersections, and Kaluza-Klein reduction
Two subtle aspects of brane intersections are investigated. The first concerns the `half-branes' that arise in discussions of the Hanany-Witten effect, often in the D0/D8 setting. The second involves
QED and string theory
We analyze the D9- system in type IIB string theory using Dp-brane probes. It is shown that the world-volume theory of the probe Dp-brane contains two-dimensional and four-dimensional QED in the
Webs of five-branes and = 2 superconformal field theories
We describe configurations of 5-branes and 7-branes which realize, when compactified on a circle, new isolated four-dimensional = 2 superconformal field theories recently constructed by Gaiotto. Our
String creation, D-branes and effective field theory
This paper addresses several unsettled issues associated with string creation in systems of orthogonal Dp-D(8−p) branes. The interaction between the branes can be understood either from the closed
The past, puzzles, and promise of 6-branes
The fact that both the D6-brane and the orientifold 6-plane have smooth, horizon-free descriptions in M-theory makes them especially useful in understanding certain aspects of brane physics. We
Supersymmetric index and s-rule for type IIB branes
We investigate the supersymmetric index of N = 2,3 SU(n) supersymmetric Yang-Mills Chern Simons theories at level k by using the brane configuration with a (p,q)5-brane. We can explain that the
The production of string charge during a crossing of certain oriented D-branes is studied. We compute the string charge in the system of a probe D2-brane and a background D6-brane by using the


Creation of Fundamental String in M(atrix) Theory
The potential between two D4-branes at angles with partially unbroken supersymmetry is computed, and is used to discuss the creation of a fundamental string when two such D4-branes cross each other
(8,0) Quantum mechanics and symmetry enhancement in type I' superstrings
The low-energy supersymmetric quantum mechanics describing D-particles in the background of D8-branes and orientifold planes is analyzed in detail, including a careful discussion of Gauss' law and
A Note on brane creation
Geometrical Analysis of Brane Creation via M-Theory.
A geometrical analysis is given of Dirichlet fourbrane creation, when sixbrane crosses fivebrane in M-theory. A special property of the Taub-NUT space leads to the consequence. When brane
We study configurations of a single M five-brane in the geometry R7× Q where Q is the Taub–NUT space. Taking the IIA limit at each value of their modulus, two possible IIA configurations are revealed.
Anomalous creation of branes
In certain circumstances when two branes pass through each other a third brane is produced stretching between them. We explain this phenomenon by the use of chains of dualities and the inflow of
