Field Theory Supertubes


Starting with intersecting M2-branes in M-theory, the IIA supertube can be found by S compactification followed by a boost to the speed of light in the 11th dimension. A similar procedure applied to DonaldsonUhlenbeck-Yau instantons on C, viewed as intersecting membranes of D = 7 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM) theory, yields (for finite boost) a new set of… (More)
