We consider systems of Dp-branes in the presence of a nonzero B field. We study the corresponding supergravity solutions in the limit where the branes worldvolume theories decouple from gravity. These provide dual descriptions of large N noncommutative field theories. We analyse the phase structure of the theories and the validity of the different description. We provide evidence that in the presence of a nonzero B field the worldvolume theory of D6 branes may decouple from gravity. We analyse… Expand

Supergravity description of the large N noncommutative dipole field theories
We consider a system of Dp-branes in the presence of a nonzero B field with one leg along brane worldvolume and the other transverse to it. We study the corresponding supergravity solutions and showExpand
In this paper we consider D = 4 NCSYM theories with 8 supercharges. We study these theories through a proper type IIA (and M-theory) brane configuration. We find the one loop beta function of theseExpand
Supergravity and “new” six-dimensional gauge theories
Abstract In the first part of this Letter, we analyse the supergravity dual descriptions of six-dimensional field theories realized on the worldvolume of ( p , q ) five-branes (OD5 theory). We showExpand
On supergravity solutions of branes in Melvin universes
We study supergravity solutions of type-II branes wrapping a Melvin universe. These solutions provide the gravity description of non-commutative field theories with non-constant non-commutativeExpand
Branes and Brane Worlds in M-Theory
A new class of warped Anti-de Sitter solutions is found, arising as the near-horizon region of various semi-localized brane intersections. The dual gauge theories of AdS in warped spacetimes haveExpand
How noncommutative gauge theories couple to gravity
Abstract We study coupling of noncommutative gauge theories on branes to closed string in the bulk. We derive an expression for the gauge theory operator dual to the bulk graviton, both in bosonicExpand
Supergravity and light-like non-commutativity
We construct dual supergravity descriptions of field theories and little string theories with light-like non-commutativity. The field theories are realized on the world-volume of Dp-branes withExpand
Nonlocal field theories and their gravity duals
The gravity duals of nonlocal field theories in the large-N limit exhibit a novel behavior near the boundary. To explore this, we present and study the duals of dipole theories, a particular class ofExpand
Supergravity duals of noncommutative wrapped D6 branes and supersymmetry without supersymmetry
We construct the supergravity solution in 11 dimensions describing D6-branes wrapped around a Kahler four-cycle with a B-fleld along the ∞at directions of the brane. The conflguration is dual to anNExpand
Supergravity dual of noncommutative SYM
Abstract We construct the noncommutative deformation of the Maldacena–Nunez supergravity solution. The background describes a bound state of D5–D3 branes wrapping an S 2 inside a Calabi–YauExpand


Supergravity and The Large N Limit of Theories With Sixteen Supercharges
We consider field theories with sixteen supersymmetries, which include U(N) Yang-Mills theories in various dimensions, and argue that their large N limit is related to certain supergravity solutions.Expand
Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity
We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal fieldExpand
D-branes and the noncommutative torus
We show that in certain superstring compactifications, gauge theories on noncommutative tori will naturally appear as D-brane world-volume theories. This gives strong evidence that they areExpand
Monopoles and dyons in non-commutative geometry
Taking advantage of the equivalence between supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on non-commutative spaces and the field theory limit of D3-branes in the background of NSNS 2-form field, we investigateExpand
Renormalizability of the supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories on the noncommutative torus
We argue that Yang-Mills theory on noncommutative torus, expressed in the Fourier modes, is described by a gauge theory in a usual commutative space, the gauge group being a generalization of theExpand
Non-commutative open string and D-brane
Abstract In this paper we consider the quantization of open strings ending on D-branes with a background B field. We find that space-time coordinates of the open string end-points becomeExpand
D-branes and deformation quantization
In this note we explain how world-volume geometries of D-branes can be reconstructed within the microscopic framework where D-branes are described through boundary conformal field theory. We extractExpand
String theory and noncommutative geometry
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 minimallyExpand

A Relation Between Commutative and Noncommutative Descriptions of D-Branes
In string theory D-branes can be expressed as a configuration of infinitely many lower-dimensional D-branes. Using this relation, the worldvolume theory of D-branes can be regarded as the worldvolumeExpand
