String Theory and Classical Absorption by Threebranes

  title={String Theory and Classical Absorption by Threebranes},
  author={Steven S. Gubser and Igor R. Klebanov and Arkady A. Tseytlin},
Low energy absorption cross-sections for various particles falling into extreme nondilatonic branes are calculated using string theory and world-volume field theory methods. The results are compared with classical absorption by the corresponding gravitational backgrounds. For the self-dual threebrane, earlier work by one of us demonstrated precise agreement of the absorption cross-sections for the dilaton, and here we extend the result to Ramond-Ramond scalars and to gravitons polarized… CONTINUE READING
