On the Orientifolding of Type II NS – Fivebranes


Dualities between certain supersymmetric gauge field theories in three and four dimensions have been studied in considerable detail recently, by realizing them as geometric manipulations of configurations of extended objects in type II string theory. These extended objects include ‘D–branes’ and ‘NS–(five)branes’. In constructing the brane configurations… (More)
