D0-branes on a D2-brane with a constant background B-field are unstable due to the presence of a tachyonic mode and expected to dissolve into the D2-brane to formulate a constant D0-charge density. In this paper we study such a dissolution process in terms of a noncommutative gauge theory. Our results show that the localized D0-brane spreads out over all of space on the D2-brane as the tachyon rolls down into a stable vacuum. D0-branes on a D2-brane can be described as unstable solitons in a… 
Noncommutativity and Tachyon Condensation
We study the fuzzy or noncommutative Dp-branes in terms of infinitely many unstable D0-branes, from which we can construct any Dp-branes. We show that the tachyon condensation of the unstable
Instantons in c = 0 CSFT
Following the recent work of [17] we discuss the emergence of D-brane instanton solutions in c = 0 noncritical string theory. Our emphasis is on finding the D-instanton effects in a field theoretic
Notes on the algebraic curves in (p,q) minimal string theory
Loop amplitudes in (p,q) minimal string theory are studied in terms of the continuum string field theory based on the free fermion realization of the KP hierarchy. We derive the Schwinger-Dyson
Analytic Study for the String Theory Landscapes via Matrix Models
We demonstrate a first-principle analysis of the string theory landscapes in the framework of non-critical string/matrix models. In particular, we discuss non-perturbative instability, decay rate and
Monte Carlo approach to nonperturbative strings—demonstration in noncritical string theory
We show how Monte Carlo approach can be used to study the double scaling limit in matrix models. As an example, we study a solvable hermitian one-matrix model with the double-well potential, which
Universality of nonperturbative effects in c < 1 noncritical string theory
Nonperturbative effects in c < 1 noncritical string theory are studied using the two-matrix model. Such effects are known to have the form fixed by the string equations but the numerical coefficients
On the chemical potential of D-instantons in c=0 noncritical string theory
We study the chemical potential of D-instantons in c = 0 noncritical string theory. In a recent work [12], it was shown that the chemical potential can be calculated using the one matrix model. The
An exact bosonization rule for c = 1 noncritical string theory
We construct a string field theory for c = 1 noncritical strings using the loop variables as the string field. We show how one can express the nonrelativistic free fermions which describes the


Exact description of D-branes via tachyon condensation
We examine the fluctuations around a Dp-brane solution in an unstable D-brane system using boundary states and also boundary string field theory. We show that the fluctuations correctly reproduce the
The Shape of nonAbelian D branes
We evaluate bulk distribution of energies, pressures and various D-brane/F-string charges generated by nontrivial matrix configurations in nonabelian D-brane effective field theories, using
D0-D4 brane tachyon condensation to a BPS state and its excitation spectrum in noncommutative super Yang-Mills theory
We investigate the D0-D4-brane system for different B-field backgrounds including the small instanton singularity in noncommutative SYM theory. We discuss the excitation spectrum of the unstable
Dynamics of strings in noncommutative gauge theory
We continue our study of solitons in noncommutative gauge theories and present an extremely simple BPS solution of = 4 U(1) noncommutative gauge theory in 4 dimensions, which describes N infinite
A construction of commutative D-branes from Lower dimensional non-BPS D-branes
We construct an exact soliton, which represents a BPS Dp-brane, in a boundary string field theory action of infinitely many non-BPS D(p−1)-branes. Furthermore, we show that this soliton can be
Unstable solitons in noncommutative gauge theory
We find a class of exact solutions of noncommutative gauge theories corresponding to unstable non-BPS solitons. In the two-dimensional euclidean (or 2+1 dimensional lorentzian) U(1) theory we find
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
Intersecting Brane Models of Particle Physics and the Higgs Mechanism
We analyze a recently constructed class of D-brane theories with the fermion spectrum of the SM at the intersection of D6-branes wrapping a compact toroidal space. We show how the SM Higgs mechanism
