We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally coupled (supersymmetric) gauge theory on a noncommutative space, and discuss the corrections away from this limit. Our analysis leads us to an equivalence between ordinary gauge fields and noncommutative gauge fields, which is realized by a change of variables that can be described explicitly. This… Expand
Strings and Noncommutativity
In these talks we review some of the recent results on open strings and noncommutative gauge theories, starting from the early calculations of open strings in a constant electromagnetic background.Expand
A Note on Noncommutative String Theory and its Low Energy Limit
The noncommutative string theory is described by embedding open string theory in a constant second rank antisymmetric Bμν field and the noncommutative gauge theory is defined by a deformed ⋆ product.Expand
Aspects of noncommutativity in field theory, strings and membranes
We study certain aspects of noncommutativity in field theory, strings and membranes. We analyse the dynamics of an open membrane whose boundary is attached to p-branes. Noncommutative features of theExpand
Noncommutative superspace, Script N = 1/2 supersymmetry, field theory and string theory
We deform the standard four dimensional = 1 superspace by making the odd coordinates θ not anticommuting, but satisfying a Clifford algebra. Consistency determines the other commutation relations ofExpand
NonAbelian noncommutative gauge theory via noncommutative extra dimensions

We show that noncommutative gauge theory in two dimensions is an exactly solv-able model. A cohomological formulation of gauge theory defined on the noncom-mutative torus is used to show that itsExpand
Open String Field Theory on Noncommutative Space
