We develop quantization aspects of our Liouville approach to noncritical strings, proposing a path-integral formulation of a second quantization of string theory, that incorporates naturally the couplings of string sources to background fields. Such couplings are characteristic of macroscopic string solutions and/or D-brane theories. Resummation over world-sheet genera in the presence of stringy (σ-model) soliton backgrounds, and recoil effects associated with logarithmic operators on the world… 
Confinement in gauge theories from the condensation of world sheet defects in Liouville string
We present a Liouville-string approach to confinement in four-dimensional gauge theories, which extends previous approaches to include nonconformal theories. We consider Liouville field theory on
We first review the interpretation of world sheet defects as D branes described by a critical theory in 11 dimensions, that we interpret as M theory. We then show that D-brane recoil induces
The Annular Report on Non-Critical String Theory
Recent results on the annulus partition function in Liouville field theory are applied to non-critical string theory, both below and above the critical dimension. Liouville gravity coupled to $c\le
D-brane recoil mislays information
We discuss the scattering of a light closed-string state off a D brane, taking into account quantum recoil effects on the latter, which are described by a pair of logarithmic operators. The
Liouville Cosmology at Zero and Finite Temperatures
We discuss cosmology in the context of Liouville strings, characterized by a central-charge deficit Q2, in which target time is identified with (the worldsheet zero mode of the) Liouville field:
Nonlinear Schrodinger dynamics of matrix D-branes
We formulate an effective Schrodinger wave equation describing the quantum dynamics of a system of D0-branes by applying the Wilson renormalization group equation to the world sheet partition
Brany Liouville inflation
We present a specific model for cosmological inflation driven by the Liouville field in a non-critical supersymmetric string framework, in which the departure from criticality is due to open strings
Disordered Dirac fermions: Multifractality termination and logarithmic conformal field theories
Abstract We reexamine in detail the problem of fermions interacting with a non-Abelian random vector potential. Without resorting to the replica or supersymmetry approaches, we show that in the limit
Recoiling D-branes
Abstract We propose a new method to describe a recoiling D-brane that is elastically scattered by closed strings in the nonrelativistic region. We utilize the low-energy effective field theory on the
Search for quantum spacetime foam
The possibility that quantum fluctuations in the structure of spacetime at the Planck scale might be subject to experimental probes in discussed. The effects of spacetime foam in an approach inspired


Quantum Hair on D-branes and Black Hole Information in String Theory
We introduce a notion of quantum hair which completely characterizes the state of a D-brane in perturbative string theory. The hair manifests itself as a phase (more generally a unitary matrix in
Some Physical Aspects of Liouville String Dynamics
We discuss some physical aspects of our Liouville approach to non-critical strings, including the emergence of a microscopic arrow of time, eective eld theories as classical \pointer" states in

It is argued that the black hole microstate can be measured by interference experiments even in the strong coupling region where there is clearly an event horizon, and extracting information which is naively behind the event horizon is possible.
