We study derivative corrections to the effective action for a single D-brane in type II superstring theory coupled to constant background fields. In particular, within this setting we determine the complete expression for the (disk-level) fourderivative corrections to the Born-Infeld part of the action. We also determine 2nform 2n-derivative corrections to the Wess-Zumino term. Both types of corrections involve all orders of the gauge field strength, F . The results are obtained via string… CONTINUE READING
