  • Born-Infeld theory admits finite energy point particle solutions with δ-function sources, Blons. I discuss their role in the theory of Dirichlet p-branes as the ends of strings intersecting the brane when the effects of gravity are ignored. There are also topologically non-trivial electrically neutral catenoidal solutions looking like two p-branes joined by a throat. The general solution is a non-singular deformation of the catenoid if the charge is not too large and a singular deformation of… CONTINUE READING
