  title={Brane boxes and branes on singularities},
  author={Amihay Hanany and Angel M. Uranga},
Brane Box Models of intersecting NS and D5 branes are mapped to D3 branes at C/Γ singularities and viceversa, in a setup which gives rise to N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions. The Brane Box Models are constructed on a two-torus. The map is interpreted as T-duality along the two directions of the torus. Some Brane Box Models contain NS fivebranes winding around (p, q) cycles in the torus, and our method provides the geometric T-dual to such objects. An amusing aspect of the… CONTINUE READING
