We investigate D2-branes and D4-branes parallel to D8-branes. The low energy world volume theory on the branes is non-supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory. We identify the fundamental strings as the anyons of the 2+1 Chern-Simons theory and the D0-branes as solitons. The Chern-Simons theory with a boundary is modeled using NS 5-branes with ending D6-branes. The brane set-up provides for a graphical description of anomaly inflow. We also model the 4+1 Chern-Simons theory using branes and…

ABJM with Flavors and FQHE
We add fundamental matters to the = 6 Chern-Simons theory (ABJM theory), and show that D6-branes wrapped over AdS4 × S3/2 in type IIA superstring theory on AdS4 × 3 give its dual description with = 3
Relating branes and matrices
We construct a general map between a Dp-brane with magnetic flux and a matrix configuration of D0-branes, by showing how one can rewrite the boundary state of the Dp-brane in terms of its D0-brane
High-Dimensional Quantum Hall Effect in String Theory
We construct a string theory realization of the 4+1d quantum Hall effect recently described by Zhang and Hu. The string theory picture contains coincident D4-branes forming an S4 and having D0-branes
Noncommutative geometry, quantum effects and DBI-scaling in the collapse of D0-D2 bound states
We study fluctuations of time-dependent fuzzy two-sphere solutions of the non-abelian DBI action of D0-branes, describing a bound state of a spherical D2-brane with N D0-branes. The quadratic action
${\cal N}=3$ Supersymmetric Effective Action of D2-branes in Massive IIA String Theory
We obtain a new type of $\mathcal{N}=3$ Yang-Mills Chern-Simons theory from the Mukhi-Papageorgakis Higgs mechanism of the $\mathcal{N}=3$ Gaiotto-Tomasiello theory. This theory has $\mathcal{N}=1$
The moduli space of non-abelian vortices in Yang–Mills–Chern–Simons–Higgs theory
We determine the dimension of the moduli space of non-abelian vortices in Yang–Mills–Chern–Simons–Higgs theory in 2 + 1 dimensions for gauge groups G=(U(1)×G′)/Zn0 with G′ being an arbitrary
Algebraic geometry realization of quantum Hall soliton
Using the Iqbal–Netzike–Vafa dictionary giving the correspondence between the H2 homology of del Pezzo surfaces and p-branes, we develop a way to approach the system of brane bounds in M-theory on
Fuzzy sphere dynamics and non-abelian DBI in curved backgrounds
We consider the non-Abelian action for the dynamics of NDp'-branes in the background of MDp-branes, which parameterises a fuzzy sphere using the SU(2) algebra. We find that the curved background
NC Branes and Hierarchies in Quantum Hall Fluids
We develop the non-commutative Chern-Simons gauge model analysis modeling the description of the hierarchical states of fractional quantum Hall fluids. For a generic level n of the hierarchy, we show
Jain states in a matrix theory of the quantum Hall effect
The U(N) Maxwell-Chern-Simons matrix gauge theory is proposed as an extension of Susskind's noncommutative approach. The theory describes D0-branes, nonrelativistic particles with matrix coordinates


Moduli space of vacua of supersymmetric Chern-Simons theories and type IIB branes
We study the correspondence between the moduli space of vacua of three-dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills (Maxwell) Chern-Simons theories and brane configurations with a (p,q)5-brane. For Coulomb
Chern-Simons supersymmetric branes
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to continue the study of the class of models proposed in a previous letter. The model corresponds to a system of branes of diverse dimensionalities with
Maxwell Chern-Simons Solitons from Type IIB String Theory
We study various three-dimensional supersymmetric Maxwell Chern-Simons solitons by using type IIB brane configurations. We give a systematic classification of soliton spectra such as topological BPS
Three-dimensional gauge dynamics from brane configurations with the (p, q)-fivebrane
Abstract We study three-dimensional gauge dynamics by using type IIB superstring brane configurations, which can be obtained from the M-theory configuration of M2-branes stretched between two
How Bob Laughlin tamed the giant graviton from Taub-NUT space
In this paper we show how two dimensional electron systems can be modeled by strings interacting with D-branes. The dualities of string theory allow several descriptions of the system. These include
Branes and supersymmetry breaking in 3D gauge theories
It is shown that supersymmetry is spontaneously broken in certain three-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories, by using the s-rule in their string theory realization as brane configurations. In
Adhering 0-branes to 6-branes and 8-branes
A Yang-Mills solution is constructed on T 6 which corresponds to a brane configuration composed purely of 0-branes and 6-branes. This configuration breaks all supersymmetries and has an energy
