Tachyon Condensation and Non-BPS D-branes in a Ramond-Ramond Plane Wave Background

We consider string theory in maximally supersymmetric type IIB plane wave background with constant five form Ramond-Ramond flux (RR plane wave). It is argued that there exists a universal sector of

Aspects of plane waves and Taub-NUT as exact string theory solutions

This thesis is a study of some aspects of string theory solutions that are exact in the inverse string tension ɑ', and thus are valid beyond the low-energy limit. I investigate D-brane interactions

Properties of branes in curved spacetimes

A generic property of curved manifolds is the existence of focal points. We show that branes located at focal points of the geometry satisfy special properties. Examples of backgrounds to which our

Open strings in the plane wave background II: superalgebras and spectra

In [6] we started a systematic investigation of open strings in the plane wave background. In this paper we continue the analysis by discussing the superalgebras of conserved charges, the spectra of

Superstrings and D-branes in A Plane Wave

We carefully analyze the supersymmetry algebra of closed strings and open strings in a type IIB plane wave background. We use eight component chiral spinors, SO(8) MajoranaWeyl spinors, in light-cone

On integrable models from pp-wave string backgrounds

We construct solutions of type-IIB supergravity with non-trivial Ramond- Ramond 5-form in ten dimensions by replacing the transverse ∞at space of pp-wave back- grounds with exact N = (4;4) c = 4

Worldvolume supersymmetries for branes in plane waves

We study the worldvolume supersymmetries of M2 branes in the maximally supersymmetric plane wave background of M theory. For certain embeddings the standard probe analysis indicates that the

STRING THEORY, DUAL THEORIES AND D-BRANES

In the context of the Anti-de Sitter / Conformal Field Theory correspondence we consider the Berenstein-Maldacena-Nastase (BMN) sector of the large-N Super Yang-Mills theory and demonstrate

Inner brane: A D3-brane in Nappi-Witten space from an inner automorphism

Wess-Zumino-Witten (WZW) models are abstract conformal field theories with an infinite-dimensional symmetry which accounts for their integrability, and at the same time they have a sigma-model

D-branes in PP-Waves and Massive Theories on Worldsheet with Boundary

We investigate the supersymmetric D-brane configurations in the pp-wave backgrounds proposed by Maldacena and Maoz. We study the surviving supersymmetry in a D-brane configuration from the

D-branes in a plane wave from covariant open strings

We derive boundary conditions for the covariant open string corresponding to D-branes in an Hpp-wave by requiring kappa-symmetry of its bulk action. Both half-supersymmetric and

Branes in AdS and pp-wave spacetimes

We find half supersymmetric AdS-embeddings in AdS_5 x S^5 corresponding to all quarter BPS orthogonal intersections of D3-branes with Dp-branes. A particular case is the Karch-Randall embedding AdS_4

D-brane solutions in pp-wave background

Strings on pp-waves and massive two-dimensional field theories

Abstract We find a general class of pp-wave solutions of type IIB string theory such that the light cone gauge worldsheet Lagrangian is that of an interacting massive field theory. When the light

Supergravity solutions for D-branes in Hpp-wave backgrounds

We derive two families of supergravity solutions describing D-branes in the maximally supersymmetric Hpp-wave background. The first family of solutions corresponds to quarter-BPS D-branes. These

D-brane interactions in type IIB plane wave background

The cylinder diagrams that determine the static interactions between pairs of Dp-branes in the type IIB plane wave background are evaluated. The resulting expressions are elegant generalizations of
