Twisted Bundle On Quantum Torus and BPS States in Matrix Theory

  title={Twisted Bundle On Quantum Torus and BPS States in Matrix Theory},
  author={P F Ho},
Following the recent work of Connes, Douglas and Schwarz, we study the M(atrix) model compactified on a torus with a background of the three-form field. This model is given by a super Yang-Mills theory on a quantum torus. To consider twisted gauge field configurations, we construct twisted U(n) bundles on the quantum torus as a deformation of its classical counterpart. By properly taking into account membranes winding around the light-cone direction, we derive from the M(atrix) model the BPS… CONTINUE READING
