Non-BPS D 8-branes and Dynamic Domain Walls in Massive IIA
We study the D8-branes of the Romans massive IIA supergravity theory using the coupled supergravity and worldvolume actions. D8 branes can be regarded as domain walls with the jump in the extrinsic
Non-BPS D8-branes and dynamic domain walls in massive IIA supergravities
We study the D8-branes of the Romans massive IIA supergravity theory using the coupled supergravity and worldvolume actions. D8 branes can be regarded as domain walls with the jump in the extrinsic
D-Branes and Vacuum Periodicity
The superstring/M-theory suggests the Born-Infeld type modification of the classical gauge field lagrangian. We discuss how this changes topological issues related to vacuum periodicity in the SU(2)
Electromagnetic dipole radiation of oscillating D-branes
I emphasize analogy between Dp-branes in string theories and solitons in gauge theories comparing their common properties and showing differences. In string theory we do not have the full set of
Dirac-Born-Infeld action on the tachyon kink and vortex
The tachyon effective field theory describing the dynamics of a non-BPS D-brane in superstring theory has an infinitely thin but finite tension kink solution describing a codimension one BPS D-brane.
Born-Infeld Action in String Theory
In this thesis I present applications of the Born-Infeld action to the description of D-branes, mostly in the context of type IIB string theory. First I present the Callan-Maldacena construction of a
Von Neumann Boundary Conditions from Born-Infeld Dynamics
We would like to show that certain excitations of the F-string/D3-brane system can be shown to obey von Neumann boundary conditions by considering the Born-Infeld dynamics of the F-string (viewed as
Brane Death via Born-Infeld String
I revisit the solution of Born-Infeld theory which corresponds to a 3-brane and anti-brane joined by a (fundamental) string. The global instability of this configuration makes possible the

In their early days dual models were proposed as a theory of hadronic interactions. Mesons are described by open strings, and in this context it is natural to consider heavy quarks at their

Abstract A geometrical stress energy tensor for semi-Riemannian manifolds is described and a Mach's principle is formulated. It is shown that vacuum occurs if and only if the manifold is a totally
