# The 's-rule' exclusion principle and vacuum interpolation in worldvolume dynamics

@article{Gomis2002TheE, title={The 's-rule' exclusion principle and vacuum interpolation in worldvolume dynamics}, author={Joaquim Gomis and Paul K. Townsend and Mattias N. R. Wohlfarth}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2002}, volume={2002}, pages={027-027} }

We show how the worldvolume realization of the Hanany-Witten effect for a supersymmetric D5-brane in a D3 background also provides a classical realization of the `s-rule' exclusion principle. Despite the supersymmetry, the force on the D5-brane vanishes only in the D5 `ground state', which is shown to interpolate between 6-dimensional Minkowski space and an OSp(4*|4)-invariant AdS2 × S4 geometry. The M-theory analogue of these results is briefly discussed.
