The Self-Dual String and Anomalies in the M5-brane

We study the anomalies of a charge Q2 self-dual string solution in the Coulomb branch of Q5 M5-branes. Cancellation of these anomalies allows us to determine the anomaly of the zero-modes on the

Dirac branes for Dirichlet branes: Supergravity actions

Nontrivial Bianchi identities with local magnetic sources are solved by recognizing that gauge potentials are sections rather than globally defined functions, but properly accounting for the source

Nonabelian 2-forms and loop space connections from SCFT deformations

It is shown how the deformation of the superconformal generators on the string's worldsheet by a nonabelian super-Wilson line gives rise to a covariant exterior derivative on loop space coming from a

From loop space mechanics to nonabelian strings

Lifting supersymmetric quantum mechanics to loop space yields the superstring. A particle charged under a fiber bundle thereby turns into a string charged under a 2-bundle, or gerbe. This



Neveu-Schwarz 5-branes in type-IIA supergravity and gravitational anomalies

A gravitational–anomaly–free effective action for the coupled system of IIA D = 10 dynamical supergravity interacting with an NS5–brane is constructed based on a Chern–kernel which encodes the singularities of the three–form field strength near the brane in an SO(4)– invariant way and provides a solution for its Bianchi identity in terms of a two–form potential.

Gravitational anomaly cancellation for M-theory fivebranes

We study gravitational anomalies for fivebranes in M theory. We show that an apparent anomaly in diffeomorphisms acting on the normal bundle is cancelled by a careful treatment of the M theory

Towards the classification of nonmarginal bound states of M-branes and their construction rules

We present a systematic analysis of possible bound states of M-brane solutions (including waves and monopoles) by using the solution generating technique of reduction fo M-brane to 10 dimensions, use

Partially localized intersecting BPS branes

Fully localized brane intersections - the plot thickens

We study fully localized BPS brane solutions in classical supergravity using a perturbative approach to the coupled Born-Infeld/bulk supergravity system. We derive first order bulk supergravity
