  title={Supersymmetric Branes in PP Wave Background},
  author={Dongsu Bak},
We consider the matrix model associated with pp-wave background and construct supersym-metric branes. In addition to the spherical membrane preserving 16 supersymmetries, one may construct rotating elliptic membranes preserving 8 supersymmetries. The other branch describes rotating 1/8 BPS hyperbolic branes in general. When the angular momentum vanishes, the hyper-bolic brane becomes 1/4 BPS preserving 8 real supersymmetries. It may have the shape of AdS 2 or dS 2 embedded in the flat three… CONTINUE READING
