We wish to consider in this report the large-N limit of a particular matrix model introduced by Myers describing D-brane physics in the presence of an RR flux background. At finite N, fuzzy spheres appear naturally as non-trivial solutions to this matrix model and have been extensively studied. In this report, we wish to demonstrate several new classes of solutions which appear in the large-N limit, corresponding to the fuzzy cylinder,the fuzzy plane and a warped fuzzy plane. The latter two… 

On Emergent Geometry from Entanglement Entropy in Matrix theory

It is demonstrated that a membrane stretched between the probe and the sphere entangles these modes and can lead to the entanglement entropy that encodes information about local gravitational geometry seen by the probe.

Towards an observational appraisal of string cosmology

We review the current observational status of string cosmology when confronted with experimental datasets. We begin by defining common observational parameters and discuss how they are determined for

Enhanced symmetries, duality invariance and moduli stabilization in string gas cosmology

This manusript based thesis explores the consequences of string gas cosmology for the moduli problem in string theory. We compile three published papers which set up the formalism and technique of

Chasing brane inflation in string theory

We investigate the embedding of brane–antibrane inflation into a concrete type IIB string theory compactification with all moduli fixed. Specifically, we are considering a D3-brane, whose position

Matrix equations and trilinear commutation relations

An algebraic approach to treating static equations of matrix models as a consequence of parafermi-like trilinear commutation relations, including the construction of noncommutative spheres is discussed.

Trapped quintessential inflation in the context of flux compactifications

We present a model for quintessential inflation using a string modulus for the inflaton–quintessence field. The scalar potential of our model is based on generic non-perturbative potentials arising

A note on non-commutative dynamics of spinning D0 branes

Rotational dynamics is known to polarize D0 branes into higher dimensional fuzzy D$p$-branes: the tension forces between D0 branes provide the centripetal acceleration, and a puffed up spinning

Non-commutative dynamics of spinning D0 branes

Rotational dynamics is known to polarize D0 branes into higher dimensional fuzzy Dp-branes: the tension forces between D0 branes provide the centripetal acceleration, and a puffed up spinning



Classical mechanics

Non-Commutative Geometry

For purely mathematical reasons it is necessary to consider spaces which cannot be represented as point set sand where the coordinates describing the space do not commute.In other words,spaces which

The Fuzzy sphere

A model of Euclidean spacetime is presented in which at scales less than a certain length kappa the notion of a point does not exist and the algebra which determines the structure of the model is an algebra of matrices.

Absence of Ferromagnetism or Antiferromagnetism in One- or Two-Dimensional Isotropic Heisenberg Models

It is rigorously proved that at any nonzero temperature, a one- or two-dimensional isotropic spin-S Heisenberg model with finite-range exchange interaction can be neither ferromagnetic nor

There are no Goldstone bosons in two dimensions

In four dimensions, it is possible for a scalar field to have a vacuum expectation value that would be forbidden if the vacuum were invariant under some continuous transformation group, even though

Komaba lectures on noncommutative solitons and D-branes

These lectures provide an introduction to noncommutative geometry and its origins in quantum mechanics and to the construction of solitons in noncommutative field theory. These ideas are applied to

Quantum space-times in the year 2002

We review certain emergent notions on the nature of space-time from noncommutative geometry and their radical implications. These ideas of space-time are suggested from developments in fuzzy physics,

D0 Matrix Mechanics: Topological Dynamics of Fuzzy Spaces

We consider the physics of a matrix model describing D0-brane dynamics in the presence of an RR flux background. Non-commuting spaces arise as generic soltions to this matrix model, among which fuzzy

The Topology of $SU(\infty)$ and the Group of Area-Preserving Diffeomorphisms of a Compact 2-manifold

Given the interest in relating the large $N$ limit of SU(N) to groups of area-preserving diffeomorphisms, we consider the topologies of these groups and show that both in terms of homology and

On the limiting procedure by which $SDiff(T^2)$ and $SU(\infty)$ are associated

There have been various attempts to identify groups of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of 2-dimensional manifolds with limits of SU(N) as $N\to\infty$. We discuss the particularly simple case where
