Closed Strings from SO(8) Yang-Mills Instantons

  title={Closed Strings from SO(8) Yang-Mills Instantons},
  author={Ruben Minasian and Samson L. Shatashvili and Pierre Vanhove},
When eight-dimensional instantons, satisfying F ∧ F = ± ⋆8 (F ∧ F ), shrink to zero size, we find stringy objects in higher order ten-dimensional Yang-Mills (viewed as a lowenergy limit of open string theory). The associated F 4 action is a combination of two independent parts having a single-trace and a double-trace structure. As a result we get a D-string from the single-trace term and a fundamental string from the double-trace. The latter has (8, 0) supersymmetry on the worldsheet and… CONTINUE READING
