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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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
