Super D-branes revisited

Super-p-brane actions from interpolating dualisations

We review a recently proposed method for constructing super-p-brane world-volume actions. In this approach, starting from a democratic choice of world-volume gauge-fields guided by p-brane

Supersymmetric world-volume action for non-BPS D-branes

We construct the world-volume action for non-BPS D-branes in type II string theories. This action is invariant under all the unbroken supersymmetries in the bulk, but these symmetries are realised as

Duality of Super D-brane Actions in General Type IIB Supergravity Background

We examine duality transformations of supersymmetric and $\kappa$-symmetric Dp-brane actions in a general type II supergravity background where in particular the dilaton and the axion are supposed to

Supersymmetric D3 brane action in AdS5×S5

Covariant Action for the Super-Five-Brane of M Theory

We propose a complete, d=6 covariant and kappa-symmetric, action for the M theory five-brane propagating in D=11 supergravity background. This opens a direct way of relating a wide class of super-p

Kappa-symmetric SL(2,R) covariant D-brane actions

A superspace formulation of IIB supergravity which includes the field strengths of the duals of the usual physical one, three and five-form field strengths as well as the eleven-form field strength

Lectures on Supergravity p-branes

We review the properties of classical p-brane solutions to supergravity theories, i.e. solutions that may be interpreted as Poincare-invariant hyperplanes in spacetime. Topics covered include the



Dirac-Born-Infeld Action from Dirichlet Sigma Model

In a recent paper we discussed, among other things, the effect of duality transformations on the open bosonic string theory. Namely, we conjectured that a macroscopic object, the D-brane, effectively

Branes within branes

Superstring theory has a rich spectrum of solitonic states, and over the last years much has been learned about their important roles in the theory, in strong-weak coupling duality and in resolving
