We study B-type D-branes in linear sigma models with Abelian gauge groups. The most important finding is the grade restriction rule. It classifies representations of the gauge group on the Chan-Paton factor, which can be used to define a family of D-branes over a region of the Kahler moduli space that connects special points of different character. As an application, we find a precise, transparent relation between D-branes in various geometric phases as well as free orbifold and Landau-Ginzburg… Expand
B-Type D-Branes in Toric Calabi-Yau Varieties
We define D-branes in linear sigma models corresponding to toric Calabi–Yau varieties. This enables us to study the transportation of D-branes along general paths in the Kahler moduli space. The mostExpand

D-brane categories for orientifolds—the Landau-Ginzburg case
We construct and classify categories of D-branes in orientifolds based on Landau-Ginzburg models and their orbifolds. Consistency of the worldsheet parity action on the matrix factorizations playsExpand
Decompactifications and massless D-branes in hybrid models
A method of determining the mass spectrum of BPS D-branes in any phase limit of a gauged linear sigma model is introduced. A ring associated to monodromy is defined and one considers K-theory to be aExpand
Topological D-Branes and Commutative Algebra
We show that questions concerning the topological B-model on a Calabi–Yau manifold in the Landau–Ginzburg phase can be rephrased in the language of commutative algebra. This yields interesting andExpand
