Using the method developed in hep-th/0103015, we determine the non-abelian Born-Infeld action through O(α′3). We start from solutions to a Yang-Mills theory which define a stable holomorphic vector bundle. In D-brane context this corresponds to BPS configurations in the limit of small background fields. Subsequently we investigate its deformation away from this limit. Through O(α′2), a unique, modulo field redefinitions, solution emerges. At O(α′3) we find a one-parameter family of allowed… CONTINUE READING
