A coincident D-brane - anti-D-brane pair has a tachyonic mode. We present an argument showing that at the classical minimum of the tachyonic potential the negative energy density associated with the potential exactly cancels the sum of the tension of the brane and the anti-brane, thereby giving a configuration of zero energy density and restoring space-time supersymmetry.

BPS D-branes after Tachyon Condensation
We construct an effective action describing brane-antibrane system containing N D-branes and N \bar{D}-branes. BPS equations for remaining D-branes after tachyon condensation are derived and their
Brane - Antibrane as a Defect of Tachyon Condensation
• Physics
• 2002
In a tachyon effective field theory of a non-BPS brane, we construct a classical solution representing a parallel brane-antibrane. The solution is made of a kink and an antikink placed at antipodal
Tachyon condensation on torus and T-duality
We find an exact solution, with a nonzero net D-brane charge, in the boundary string field theory of brane-anti-brane pairs on a torus. We explicitly take the T-dual of this configuration. The
A NOTE ON THE DYONIC D6-BRANE
• Physics
• 2004
We study the dyon electric charge of D6-branes as eleven dimensional KK-monopoles. We observe that the dyon charge is intimately related with the existence of gauge connections and antisymmetric
Tachyon kinks on unstable Dp-branes
• Physics
• 2003
In the context of tachyon effective theory coupled to Born-Infeld electromagnetic fields, we obtain all possible singularity-free static flat configurations of codimension one on unstable Dp-branes.
