# Benchmarks on the brane

@article{Duff2004BenchmarksOT, title={Benchmarks on the brane}, author={M. J. Duff}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2004} }

Branes now occupy center stage in theoretical physics as microscopic components of M-theory, as the higher-dimensional progenitors of black holes and as entire universes in their own right. Their history has been a checkered one, however. Here we list some of the milestones, starting with Dirac's 1962 paper. Asim Barut was an early pioneer.

### Thirty years of Erice on the brane

- Physics
- 2018

After initially meeting with fierce resistance, "branes", p-dimensional extended objects which go beyond particles (p=0) and strings (p=1), now occupy centre stage in theoretical physics as…

### Basics of M‐theory

- Physics
- 2006

This is a review article of eleven dimensional supergravity in which we present all necessary calculations, namely the Noether procedure, the equations of motion (without neglecting the fermions),…

### Path and path deviation equations for p-branes

- Physics
- 2010

Path and path deviation equations for neutral, charged, spinning and spinning charged test particles, using a modified Bazanski Lagrangian, are derived. We extend this approach to strings and branes.…

### Dirac equation for membranes

- Physics
- 2011

Dirac's idea of taking the square root of constraints is applied to the case of extended objects concentrating on membranes in D=4 space-time dimensions. The resulting equation is Lorentz invariant…

### A new approach to the classical and quantum dynamics of branes

- Physics
- 2016

It is shown that the Dirac–Nambu–Goto brane can be described as a point particle in an infinite-dimensional brane space with a particular metric. This suggests a generalization to brane spaces with…

### Branes and Quantized Fields

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2017

It is shown that the Dirac-Nambu-Goto brane can be described as a point particle in an infinite dimensional space with a particular metric. This can be considered as a special case of a general…

### Hawking radiation and black hole thermodynamics

- Physics
- 2005

An inexhaustive review of Hawking radiation and black hole thermodynamics is given, focusing especially upon some of the historical aspects as seen from the biased viewpoint of a minor player in the…

### Classical Strings and Membranes in the AdS/CFT Correspondence

- Physics
- 2015

In its strongest version, the AdS/CFT conjecture states that N = 4, su (Nc) super Yang-Mills (SYM) theory is equal to type IIB string theory on AdS5 × S. It is by far the most important equation of…

### Towards a New Paradigm: Relativity in Configuration Space

- Physics
- 2007

We consider the possibility that the basic space of physics is not spacetime, but configuration space. We illustrate this on the example with a system of gravitationally interacting point particles.…

### Brane world black holes

- Physics
- 2000

Gravitational collapse of matter trapped on a brane will produce a black hole on the brane. We discuss such black holes in the models of Randall and Sundrum where our universe is viewed as a domain…

### Brane new world

- ArtNature

Some theorists propose that our Universe exists as a slice through multidimensional space. Could this 'brane-world' concept unify gravity with nature's other fundamental forces? Roland Pease reports.

### Lectures on Supergravity p-branes

- Physics
- 1996

We review the properties of classical p-brane solutions to supergravity theories, i.e. solutions that may be interpreted as Poincare-invariant hyperplanes in spacetime. Topics covered include the…

### D-Branes And K-Theory

- Philosophy
- 1998

By exploiting recent arguments about stable nonsupersymmetric D-brane states, we argue that D-brane charge takes values in the K-theory of spacetime, as has been suspected before. In the process, we…
