We show how to translate boundary conditions into constraints in the symplectic quantization method by an appropriate choice of generalized variables. This way the symplectic quantization of an open string attached to a brane in the presence of an antisymmetric background field reproduces the noncommutativity of the brane coordinates. 

Symplectic quantization of open strings in constant background B-field

Abstract.The symplectic quantization (Faddeev-Jackiw) method is reviewed briefly, and then it is applied to the open strings in the D-brane background with a non-vanishing constant B-field. We shall


Generally, in the presence of an antisymmetric tensor background field, the open string moving with mixed Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions will make the spacetime coordinates noncommutative.

On open string in generic background

A set of consistent Poisson brackets for an open string in generic spacetime background and NS-NS $B$-field is constructed. Upon quantization, this set of Poisson brackets lead to spacial

Symplectic embedding of a massive vector-tensor theory with topological coupling

Abstract.In the symplectic Lagrangian framework we in a new fashion embed an irreducible massive vector-tensor theory into a gauge invariant system, which has become reducible, by extending the

Boundary conditions as constraints


The open string ending on a flat D-brane in the pp-wave background with a constant B-field is exactly solvable but will be controlled by a more mass parameter. In this paper we mainly quantize this

Normal ordering and boundary conditions in open bosonic strings

Boundary conditions play a nontrivial role in string theory. For instance, the rich structure of D-branes is generated by choosing appropriate combinations of Dirichlet and Neumann boundary

Massive open string and totally-noncommutativity in space and momentum coordinates trough Fadeev Jackiw approach

In this work we will show that it is possible to construct totally noncommuta tivity in the cas of massive bosonic string in an external B-field by extending the well known Faddeev-Jackiw formalism

Noncommutativity in interpolating string: A study of gauge symmetries in a noncommutative framework

A new Lagrangian description that interpolates between the Nambu-Goto and Polyakov version of interacting strings is given. Certain essential modifications in the Poisson bracket structure of this
