We investigate various supersymmetric brane intersections. Motivated by the recent results on supertubes, we investigate general constraints in which parallel brane-antibrane configurations are supersymmetric. Dual descriptions of these configurations involve systems of intersecting branes in relative motion. In particular, we find new supersymmetric configurations which are not related to a static brane intersection by a boost. In these new configurations, the intersection point moves at the…

World-sheet duality for D-branes with travelling waves

We study D-branes with plane waves of arbitrary profiles as examples of time- dependent backgrounds in string theory. We show how to reproduce the quantum mechan- ical (one-to-one) open-string

Topological charges for branes in M-theory

We propose a simple form for the superalgebra of M2 and M5-brane probes in arbitrary supersymmetric backgrounds of 11d supergravity, extending previous results in the literature. In particular, we

D1-D3 (or ) systems with fluxes

In this article we study D1-D3 (or ) brane systems with generic constant electric and magnetic fluxes in IIB string theory. We work out all possible supersymmetric configurations and find out via

String pair creations in D-brane systems

We investigate the criterion, on the Born-Infeld background fields, for the open string pair creation to occur in Dp-(anti-)Dp-brane systems. Although the pair creation occurs generically in both

Boundary states for D-branes with traveling waves

We construct boundary states for D-branes which carry traveling waves in the covariant formalism. We compute their vacuum amplitudes to investigate their interactions. In non-compact space, the

D-branes on the null-brane

We study D-branes in the null-brane background. Using the covariant formalism of the worldsheet theory, we construct the boundary states describing D-branes on the null-brane. From the cylinder

Time Evolution via S-branes

Using S(pacelike)-branes defined through rolling tachyon solutions, we show how the dynamical formation of D(irichlet)-branes and strings in tachyon condensation can be understood. Specifically we

Unitarity meets channel-duality for rolling/decaying D-branes

Investigations for decay of unstable D-brane and rolling of accelerated D-brane dynamics have revealed that various proposed prescriptions give different result for spectral amplitudes and

Lineal Trails of D 2-D 2 Superstrings

Abstract: We study the superstrings suspended between a D2and a D2-brane. We quantize the string in the presence of some general configuration of gauge fields over the (anti-)D-brane world volumes.

Aspects of supertubes

We find supersymmetric solutions of the D4-brane Born-Infeld action describing D2 supertubes ending on an arbitrary curve inside a D4-brane. From the D4-brane point of view, these are dyonic strings.

More D -brane bound states

The low-energy background field solutions corresponding to D-brane bound states which possess a difference in dimension of two are presented. These solutions are constructed using the T-duality map

Tachyons, supertubes and brane / anti-brane systems

We find supertubes with arbitrary (and not necessarily planar) cross-section; the stability against the D2-brane tension is due to a compensation by the local momentum generated by Born-Infeld

Null Brane Intersections

We study pairs of planar D-branes intersecting on null hypersurfaces, and other related configurations. These are supersymmetric and have finite energy density. They provide open-string analogues of

Supersymmetric Brane-Antibrane Systems: Matrix Model Description, Stability and Decoupling Limits

After reviewing the supertubes and super brane-antibrane systems in the context of matrix model, we look for more general higher-dimensional configurations. For D3-, we find a non-trivial

Null orbifolds in AdS, Time Dependence and Holography

We study M/D-branes in a null-brane background. By taking a near horizon limit, one is left with cosmological models in the corresponding Poincarpatches. To deal with their usual horizons, we either
