Baryons and string creation from the 5-brane world-volume action


Some very interesting things can be learned about the physics of D-branes by studying the solutions of the effective action for low-energy fluctuations of the D-brane about its ground state. Many

Spacelike brane actions.

It is shown that the BIon spike solutions constructed in this system correspond to the production of a confined electric flux tube (a fundamental string) at late time of the rolling tachyon.

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

Metamorphosis of tachyon profile in unstable D9-branes

We explored a variety of brane configurations in our previous paper within the two derivative truncation of the unstable D9-brane effective theory. In this paper we extend our previous results with

Strong coupling dynamics of branes from M-theory

We study some aspects of the strong coupling dynamics of Dirichlet six branes, anti- six branes, and orientifold planes by using the equivalence of type IIA string theory and M-theory on S1. In the

D-branes, quivers, and ALE instantons

Effective field theories in type I and II superstring theories for D-branes located at points in the orbifold C^2/Z_n are supersymmetric gauge theories whose field content is conveniently summarized

Tasi lectures on D-branes

This is an introduction to the properties of D-branes, topological defects in string theory on which string endpoints can live. D-branes provide a simple description of various nonperturbative

Dirac-Born-Infeld Action from Dirichlet Sigma Model

In a recent paper we discussed, among other things, the effect of duality transformations on the open bosonic string theory. Namely, we conjectured that a macroscopic object, the D-brane, effectively
