The one-loop effective action for a p brane embedded in a D = p+2 Minkowski spacetime in the static gauge is calculated. Rescaling the quantum fluctuation by (−g0)1/2 evaluated on the background brane leads to the one-loop effective action expressed only in terms of infrared and ultraviolet divergent geometric scalars. After the infrared divergences are absorbed into the quantum fluctuation, there remains the finite number of ultraviolet divergences. This implies that the D = p+2 Poincare…

Colliding Waves on a Brane, the Big Bounce and Reconnection

We present a time-dependent solution of the Nambu-Goto action which represents two colliding waves moving at the speed of light. This solution can be decomposed into two distinct regions with



Oscillating p-branes

Coset methods are used to construct the action describing the dynamics associated with the spontaneous breaking of the Poincare symmetries of D dimensional space-time due to the embedding of a

One loop divergencies in the theory of gravitation

All one-loop divergencies of pure gravity and all those of gravitation interacting with a scalar particle are calculated. In the case of pure gravity, no physically relevant divergencies remain;

A numerical study of confinement in compact QED

Compact U(1) lattice gauge theory in four dimensions is studied by means of an efficient algorithm which exploits the duality transformation properties of the model. We focus our attention onto the

On the effective string spectrum of the tridimensional Z(2) gauge model

We study the 2 lattice gauge theory in three dimensions, and present high precision estimates for the first few energy levels of the string spectrum. These results are obtained from new numerical

Quantum Fields in Curved Space

This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole

Strings, Monopoles and Gauge Fields

The Nielsen-Olesen interpretation of dual strings as Abrikosov flux lines is extended to the case of open-ended strings by adapting Dirac's description of magnetic monopoles to a London-type theory.

Relativistic quantum mechanics of one-dimensional mechanical continuum and subsidiary condition of dual resonance model

Relativistic quantum mechanics of a finite one-dimensional continuum is studied in the framework of Dirac's generalized Hamiltonian dynamics. It is shown that the wave equation and subsidiary
