# D-branes in Massive IIA and Solitons in Chern-Simons Theory

@article{Brodie2000DbranesIM, title={D-branes in Massive IIA and Solitons in Chern-Simons Theory}, author={John Brodie}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2000} }

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…
