The authors review some aspects of the interplay between the dynamics of branes in string theory and the classical and quantum physics of gauge theories with different numbers of supersymmetries in various dimensions. 
Lectures on Strings, D-branes and Gauge Theories
In these lectures we review the basic ideas of perturbative and non-perturbative string theory. On the non-perturbative side we give an introduction to D-branes and string duality. The elementary
Field Theory Dynamics from branes in String Theory
I review certain aspects of Hanany-Witten setups and other approaches used to embed (and solve) gauge theories in string theory. Applications covered include dualities in 4 and 3 dimensions, fixed
Spontaneous SUSY breaking in various dimensions
Instantons and Supersymmetry
The role of instantons in describing non-perturbative aspects of globally supersymmetric gauge theories is reviewed. The cases of theories with N = 1, N = 2 and N = 4 supersymmetry are discussed.

Lift of MetaStable Brane Configuration in Symplectic and Orthogonal Gauge Groups
The M-theory lift for the supersymmetry breaking IIA brane configuration corresponding to the meta-stable state of N = 1 unitary supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with massive flavors was found by
Vortices under S-duality
We investigate a system of 1,3, and 7-branes in type IIB string theory. We identify the 1-brane with the vortex of the Abelian Higgs model. We claim that in the S-dual, the theory on the 3-brane
Integrable many-body systems and gauge theories
We review the study of the relation between integrable many-body systems and gauge theories. We show that the degrees of freedom of integrable systems are related to the topological degrees of

Some notions in non-perturbative dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories are being reviewed. This is done by touring through a few examples.
On the realization of chiral four-dimensional gauge theories using branes
We consider a general brane construction for realizing chiral four-dimensional gauge theories. The advantage of the construction is the simplicity and the possibility of realizing a large class of

A PROOF OF BRANE CREATION VIA M-THEORY
We study configurations of a single M five-brane in the geometry R7× Q where Q is the Taub–NUT space. Taking the IIA limit at each value of their modulus, two possible IIA configurations are revealed.
