Consistent Quantization of Noncommutative D-brane in Non-constant B Field Background

We perform the consistent quantization of open string D-brane in non-constant NS-NS closed string B field background by directly imposing the worldsheet conformal symmetry. In addition to the


The open string ending on a flat D-brane in the pp-wave background with a constant B-field is exactly solvable but will be controlled by a more mass parameter. In this paper we mainly quantize this

Symplectic quantization of open strings in constant background B-field

Abstract.The symplectic quantization (Faddeev-Jackiw) method is reviewed briefly, and then it is applied to the open strings in the D-brane background with a non-vanishing constant B-field. We shall

Symplectic Quantization of Massive Bosonic string in background B-field

We give the details of symplectic quantization for a system containing second class constraints. This method is appropriate for imposing infinite series of constraints due to the boundary conditions.

On open string in generic background

A set of consistent Poisson brackets for an open string in generic spacetime background and NS-NS $B$-field is constructed. Upon quantization, this set of Poisson brackets lead to spacial

Noncommutative open strings from Dirac quantization

We study Dirac commutators of canonical variables on D-branes with a constant Neveu–Schwarz two-form field by using the Dirac constraint quantization method, and point out some subtleties appearing



Non-commutative open string and D-brane

D-branes and the noncommutative torus

We show that in certain superstring compactifications, gauge theories on noncommutative tori will naturally appear as D-brane world-volume theories. This gives strong evidence that they are

New Connections Between String Theories

We consider the R→0 limit of toroidal compactification in various string theories. This leads to new connections between seemingly different string theories: IIA and IIB, open and closed, oriented

A path integral representation of the map between commutative and noncommutative gauge fields

The world-volume theory on a D-brane in a constant B-field background can be described by either commutative or noncommutative Yang-Mills theories. These two descriptions correspond to two different

D-branes and Deformation Quantization

In this note we explain how world-volume geometries of D-branes can be reconstructed within the microscopic framework where D-branes are described through boundary conformal field theory. We extract

Worldvolume Uncertainty Relations for D-Branes

By quantizing an open string ending on a D-brane in a nontrivial supergravity background, we argue that there is a new kind of uncertainty relation on a D-brane worldvolume. Furthermore, we fix the

Open strings in background gauge fields

U-duality of Born-Infeld on the noncommutative two-torus

We discuss Born-Infeld on the noncommutative two-torus as a description of compactified string theory. We show that the resulting theory, including the fluctuations, is manifestly invariant under the
