Supersymmetric Brane-Antibrane Systems: Matrix Model Description, Stability and Decoupling Limits

After reviewing the supertubes and super brane-antibrane systems in the context of matrix model, we look for more general higher-dimensional configurations. For D3-, we find a non-trivial

From D-bar D Pairs to Branes in Motion

We investigate various supersymmetric brane intersections. Motivated by the recent results on supertubes, we investigate general constraints in which parallel brane-antibrane configurations are

A dielectric flow solution with maximal supersymmetry

We obtain a solution to eleven-dimensional supergravity that consists of M2-branes embedded in a dielectric distribution of M5-branes. Contrary to normal expectations, this solution has maximal

Tachyons, supertubes and brane / anti-brane systems

We find supertubes with arbitrary (and not necessarily planar) cross-section; the stability against the D2-brane tension is due to a compensation by the local momentum generated by Born-Infeld

The D2 SUSY zoo

We present new supersymmetric solutions of the Dirac-Born-Infeld equations for time-independent D2-branes, including a 1/2 supersymmetric `dyonic' D2-brane and various 1/4 supersymmetric

Supersymmetric branes in the matrix model of a pp wave background

We consider the matrix model associated with pp-wave background and construct supersymmetric branes. In addition to the spherical membrane preserving 16 supersymmetries, one may construct rotating

Tachyon tube and supertube

We search for tubular solutions in unstable D3-brane. With critical electric field E = 1, solutions representing supertubes, which are supersymmetric bound states of fundamental strings, D0-branes,

Supersymmetric Defect Expansion in CFT from AdS Supertubes

The AdS/dCFT correspondence is used to show that a planar q-dimensional superconformal CFT defect expands, under the addition of electric charge and angular momentum, to a supersymmetric

Supergravity Supertubes

: We find the supergravity solution sourced by a supertube: a (1/4)-super-symmetric D0-charged IIA superstring that has been blown up to a cylindrical D2-brane by angular momentum. The supergravity

Note on noncommutative tachyon in matrix models

Exact Multi-Vortex Solutions in Noncommutative Abelian-Higgs Theory

We consider the noncommutative Abelian-Higgs theory and construct new types of exact multi-vortex solutions that solve the static equations of motion. They in general do not follow from the BPS

A Note on Background Independence in Noncommutative Gauge Theories, Matrix Model and Tachyon Condensation

Using the construction of D-branes with nonzero $B$ field in the matrix model we give a physical interpretation of the known background independence in gauge theories on a noncommutative space. The

Unstable solitons in noncommutative gauge theory

We find a class of exact solutions of noncommutative gauge theories corresponding to unstable non-BPS solitons. In the two-dimensional euclidean (or 2+1 dimensional lorentzian) U(1) theory we find
