Branes in the Euclidean AdS_3
In this work we propose an exact microscopic description of maximally symmetric branes in a Euclidean AdS3 background. As shown by Bachas and Petropoulos, the most important such branes are localized
Open string attractors
We present a simple example of a supersymmetric attractor mechanism in the purely open string context of D-branes embedded in curved space-time. Our example involves a class of D3-branes embedded in
Boundary states for AdS2 branes in AdS3
Nonstatic AdS_2 Branes and the Isometry Group of AdS_3 Spacetime
For the D-branes on the SL(2,R) WZW model we present a particular choice of outer automorphism for the gluing condition of currents that leads to a special AdS_2 brane configuration. This
Branes in the 2D black hole
We present a comprehensive analysis of branes in the Euclidean 2D black hole (cigar). In particular, exact boundary states and annulus amplitudes are provided for D0-branes which are localized at the
D-branes in anti-de-Sitter space
We investigate the role of Dp-branes, which are p+1 dimensional membranes where open strings end, in two different types of anti-de-Sitter backgrounds: AdS3xS3xM4 and AdS5xS5, where M4 is a compact
D-branes in lorentzian AdS3
We study the exact construction of D-branes in lorentzian AdS3. We start by defining a family of conformal field theories that gives a natural euclidean version of the SL(2,) CFT and does not
Nonlocal String Theories on AdS-3 x S 3 and Stable Non-Supersymmetric Backgrounds
We exhibit a simple class of exactly marginal “double-trace” deformations of two dimensional CFTs which have AdS3 duals, in which the deformation is given by a product of left and right-moving U(1)


Comments on D-branes in AdS3
We study some aspects of open string theories on D-branes with critical electric fields. We show that the massless open string modes that move in the direction of the electric field decouple. In the
Anti-de Sitter D-branes
We study D-branes of the SL(2,) WZW model and of its discrete orbifolds. Gluing the currents by group automorphisms leads to three types of D-branes: two-dimensional hyperbolic planes (H2), de Sitter
The geometry of WZW branes
Open strings and D-branes in WZNW models
Non-commutative worldvolume geometries: D-branes on SU(2) and fuzzy spheres
The geometry of D-branes can be probed by open string scattering. If the background carries a non-vanishing B-field, the world-volume becomes non-commutative. Here we explore the quantization of
D-Branes on Group Manifolds
We study the possible D-brane configurations in an AdS3 × S3 × T4 background with a NS-NS B field. We use its WZW model description and the boundary state formalism, and we analyse the bosonic and
IIA/B, wound and wrapped
We examine the T-duality relation between 1+1 NCOS and the DLCQ limit of type-IIA string theory. We show that, as long as there is a compact dimension, one can meaningfully define an ``NCOS'' limit
Newtonian gravitons and d-brane collective coordinates in wound string theory
Recently it was shown that NCOS theories are part of a ten-dimensional theory known as Non-relativistic Wound string theory. We clarify the sense in which gravity is present in this theory. We show
