### Lectures on D-branes

- Physics
- 1998

This is an introduction to the physics of D-branes. Topics covered include Polchinski’s original calculation, a critical assessment of some duality checks, D-brane scattering, and eective worldvolume…

### Strings, Branes and Extra Dimensions

- Physics
- 2001

This review is devoted to strings and branes. Firstly, perturbative string theory is introduced. The appearance of various types of branes is discussed. These include orbifold fixed planes, D-branes…

### Non-BPS D 8-branes and Dynamic Domain Walls in Massive IIA

- Mathematics
- 1999

We study the D8-branes of the Romans massive IIA supergravity theory using the coupled supergravity and worldvolume actions. D8 branes can be regarded as domain walls with the jump in the extrinsic…

### Tasi lectures on D-branes

- Physics
- 1996

This is an introduction to the properties of D-branes, topological defects in string theory on which string endpoints can live. D-branes provide a simple description of various nonperturbative…

### Branes within branes

- Physics
- 1995

Superstring theory has a rich spectrum of solitonic states, and over the last years much has been learned about their important roles in the theory, in strong-weak coupling duality and in resolving…

### Dirichlet Branes and Ramond-Ramond charges.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 1995

We show that D-branes, extended objects defined by mixed Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions, break half the supersymmetries of the type II superstring and carry a complete set of electric and…

### Supersymmetric String Solitons

- Physics
- 1991

These notes are based on lectures given by C. Callan and J. Harvey at the 1991 Trieste Spring School on String Theory and Quantum Gravity. The subject is the construction of supersymmetric soliton…
