# Supergravity description of non-Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield branes

@article{Brax2001SupergravityDO, title={Supergravity description of non-Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield branes}, author={P. Brax and G. Mandal and Y. Oz}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2001}, volume={63}, pages={064008} }

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.
