An Associative and Noncommutative Product for the Low Energy Effective Theory of a D-Brane in Curved Backgrounds and Bi-Local Fields

Abstract

We point out that when a D-brane is placed in an NS-NS B field background with non-vanishing field strength (H = dB) along the D-brane worldvolume, the coordinate of one end of the open string does not commute with that of the other in the low energy limit. The degrees of the freedom associated with both ends are not decoupled and accordingly, the effective… (More)
