# Supergravity Description of Non-BPS Branes

@inproceedings{Brax2000SupergravityDO, title={Supergravity Description of Non-BPS Branes}, author={P. Brax and G. Mandal and Y. Oz}, year={2000} }

We construct supergravity solutions that correspond to N Dp-branes coinciding with N Dp-branes. We study the physical properties of the solutions and analyse the supergravity description of tachyon condensation. We construct an interpolation between the brane-antibrane solution and the Schwarzschild solution and discuss its possible application to the study of non-supersymmetric black holes.
