We construct an exact soliton, which represents a BPS Dp-brane, in a boundary string field theory action of infinitely many non-BPS D(p−1)-branes. Furthermore, we show that this soliton can be regarded as an exact soliton in the full string field theory. The world-volume theory of the BPS Dp-brane constructed in this way becomes usual gauge theory on commutative p+1, instead of non-commutative plane. We also construct a Dp-brane from non-BPS D(p−n)-branes by the ABS like configuration. We… Expand
Fractional D-branes
We study tachyon condensation on brane-antibrane systems in orbifold theories from the viewpoint of boundary string field theory. We show that the condensation of holomorphic tachyon fields generatesExpand
Exact description of D-branes via tachyon condensation
We examine the fluctuations around a Dp-brane solution in an unstable D-brane system using boundary states and also boundary string field theory. We show that the fluctuations correctly reproduce theExpand
Exact Description of D-Branes in K-Matrix Theory
We summarize how to describe D-branes in a matrix theory based on unstable D-instantons, which we call K-matrix theory, and explicitly show that D-branes can be constructed as bound states ofExpand
Holomorphic tachyons and fractional D-branes
Abstract We study tachyon condensation on brane–antibrane systems in orbifold theories from the viewpoint of boundary string field theory. We show that the condensation of holomorphic tachyon fieldsExpand
Ghost D-brane, supersymmetry and matrix model
In this note we study the world volume theory of pairs of D-brane and ghost D-brane, which is shown to have 16 linear supersymmetries and 16 nonlinear supersymmetries. In particular we study a matrixExpand
The Shape of nonAbelian D branes
We evaluate bulk distribution of energies, pressures and various D-brane/F-string charges generated by nontrivial matrix configurations in nonabelian D-brane effective field theories, usingExpand
D-branes and KK-theory in Type I String Theory
We analyse unstable D-brane systems in type-I string theory. Generalizing the proposal in hep-th/0108085, we give a physical interpretation for real KK-theory and claim that the D-branes embedded inExpand
We investigate the general solution with the symmetry ISO(1, p) × SO(9-p) of Type II supergravity (the three-parameter solution) from the viewpoint of the superstring theory. We find that one of theExpand
On the Supersymmetry of Non-BPS D-brane
In this paper we extend the boundary string field theory action for a non-BPS D-brane to the one including the target space fermions and the nonlinear supersymmetry with 32 supercharges up to someExpand
Dissolving D0-brane into D2-brane with background B-field
D0-branes on a D2-brane with a constant background B-field are unstable due to the presence of a tachyonic mode and expected to dissolve into the D2-brane to formulate a constant D0-charge density.Expand


Non-BPS States and Branes in String Theory
We review the recent developments in our understanding of non-BPS states and branes in string theory. The topics include 1) construction of unstable non-BPS D-branes in type IIA and type IIB stringExpand
Brane-antibrane action from boundary string field theory
In this paper we give the boundary string field theory description of brane-antibrane systems. From the world-sheet action of brane-antibrane systems we obtain the tachyon potential and discuss theExpand
Unstable solitons in noncommutative gauge theory
We find a class of exact solutions of noncommutative gauge theories corresponding to unstable non-BPS solitons. In the two-dimensional euclidean (or 2+1 dimensional lorentzian) U(1) theory we findExpand
Effective tachyon dynamics in superstring theory
A recently proposed l = ∞ field theory model of tachyon dynamics for unstable bosonic D-branes has been shown to arise as the two-derivative truncation of (boundary)-string field theory. Using an l→∞Expand
Gauge fields and fermions in tachyon effective field theories
In this paper we incorporate gauge fields into the tachyon field theory models for unstable D-branes in bosonic and in type-II string theories. The chosen couplings yield massless gauge fields and anExpand
Boundary string field theory of the D anti-D system

Noncommutative Tachyons And String Field Theory
It has been shown recently that by turning on a large noncommutativity parameter, the description of tachyon condensation in string theory can be drastically simplified. We reconsider these issuesExpand
