Weyl-invariant light-like branes and black hole physics

  title={Weyl-invariant light-like branes and black hole physics},
  author={Eduardo I. Guendelman and Alexander B. Kaganovich and Emil Nissimov and Svetlana Pacheva},
We propose a new class of p-brane theories which are Weyl-conformally invariant for any p. For any odd world-volume dimension the latter describe intrinsically light-like branes, hence the name WILL-branes (Weyl-Invariant Light-Like branes). Next we discuss the dynamics of WILL-membranes (i.e., for p=2) both as test branes in various external physically relevant D=4 gravitational backgrounds, as well as within the framework of a coupled D=4 Einstein-Maxwell-WILL-membrane system. In all cases we…

“Mass inflation” with lightlike branes

We discuss properties of a new class of p-brane models, describing intrinsically lightlike branes for any world-volume dimension, in various gravitational backgrounds of interest in the context of

Connecting the Nonsingular Origin of the Universe, the Vacuum Structure and the Cosmological Constant Problem

We consider a nonsingular origin for the universe starting from an Einstein static universe, the so-called "emergent universe" scenario, in the framework of a theory which uses two volume elements




String theory

Abstract For each n > 0, two alternative axiomatizations of the theory of strings over n alphabetic characters are presented. One class of axiomatizations derives from Tarski's system of the
