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 the (non-commutative) world-volume algebras from the operator product expansions of open string vertex operators. For branes in a flat background with constant non-vanishing B-field, the operator products are computed perturbatively to all orders in the field strength. The resulting series coincides… 

Non-commutative worldvolume geometries: D-branes on SU(2) and fuzzy spheres

The geometry of D-branes can be probed by open string scattering. If the background carries a non-vanishing B-field, the world-volume becomes non-commutative. Here we explore the quantization of

Brane Dynamics in CFT Backgrounds

In this note we discuss bound states of un- or meta-stable brane configurations in various non-trivial (curved) backgrounds. We begin by reviewing some known results concerning brane dynamics on

Horizon Branes and Chiral Strings

In this thesis I present a new type of brane - H-brane - where the role of time in String Theory is considered as a primary concept in the search for still unknown black hole physics. Using the basic

D 0-branes in a H-field Background and Noncommutative Geometry

It is known that if we compactify D0-branes on a torus with constant B-field, the resulting theory becomes SYM theory on a noncommutative dual torus. We discuss the extension to the case of a H-field


We add a simple boundary term to the Polyakov action and construct a new class of D-branes with a single null direction. On the string world sheet the system is described by a single quantized

Nonassociative Star Product Deformations for D-Brane World-Volumes in Curved Backgrounds

Abstract: We investigate the deformation of D-brane world-volumes in curved backgrounds. We calculate the leading corrections to the boundary conformal field theory involving the background fields,

D-Branes in Noncommutative Field Theory

A mathematical introduction to the classical solutions of noncommutative field theory is presented, with emphasis on how they may be understood as states of D-branes in Type II superstring theory.

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

D-branes in the WZW model

It is stated in the literature that D-branes in the WZW-model associated with the gluing condition J = - \bar{J} along the boundary correspond to branes filling out the whole group volume. We show

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

World volume noncommutativity versus target space noncommutativity

It is known that the noncommutativity of D-brane coordinate is responsible for describing the higher-dimensional D-branes in terms of more fundamental ones such as D-particles or D-instantons, while

A Path Integral Approach¶to the Kontsevich Quantization Formula

Abstract: We give a quantum field theory interpretation of Kontsevich's deformation quantization formula for Poisson manifolds. We show that it is given by the perturbative expansion of the path
