Gauge Fields and Fermions in Tachyon Effective Field Theories

Abstract

In this paper we incorporate gauge fields into the tachyon field theory models for unstable D-branes in bosonic and in Type II string theories. The chosen couplings yield massless gauge fields and an infinite set of equally spaced massive gauge fields on codimension one branes. A lack of a continuum spectrum is taken as evidence that the stable tachyon… (More)
