Aspects of M-Theory Brane Interactions and String Theory Symmetries

Abstract

The dissertation consists of two parts. The first presents an account of the effective worldvolume description of N coincident M2-branes ending on an M5-brane in M-theory. It begins by reviewing M-theory, the various viewpoints of coincident D-strings ending on a D3-brane in type-IIB string theory and the M5 picture of the M2-M5 brane system with which we… (More)
