World volume solitons of the D3-brane in the background of (p,q) five-branes

We analyze the world volume solitons of a D3-brane probe in the background of parallel (p, q) five-branes. The D3-brane is embedded along the directions transverse to the five-branes of the

D-branes and boundary states in closed string theories

In this Ph.D. thesis, we study some aspects of strings and branes. We mainly focus on anomalous D-brane couplings and on non-supersymmetric branes. In Chapter 2, we illustrate three key concepts in


We study supersymmetric D-brane configurations in AdS4×ℂℙ3 background, which is dual to the D = 3, $\mathcal{N} = 6$ Chern–Simons-matter theory discovered by Aharony et al. In particular, we consider

Born-Infeld strings between D-branes

We examine the solutions of the world-volume action for a D3-brane being put near other D3-branes which is replaced by the background configuration of bulk space. It is shown that the BPS solutions,

Open string attractors

We present a simple example of a supersymmetric attractor mechanism in the purely open string context of D-branes embedded in curved space-time. Our example involves a class of D3-branes embedded in

Supersymmetric probes on the conifold

We study the supersymmetric embeddings of different D-brane probes in the AdS5 ? T1,1 geometry. The main tool employed is kappa symmetry and the cases studied include D3-, D5- and D7-branes. We find

String creation, D-branes and effective field theory

This paper addresses several unsettled issues associated with string creation in systems of orthogonal Dp-D(8−p) branes. The interaction between the branes can be understood either from the closed

Supersymmetric branes on AdS5 × Yp,q and their field theory duals

We systematically study supersymmetric embeddings of D-brane probes of different dimensionality in the AdS5 × Y p,q background of type IIB string theory. The main technique employed is the kappa

Supersymmetric baryonic branes

We derive an energy bound for a `baryonic' D5-brane probe in the AdS5 ? S5 background near the horizon of N D3-branes. Configurations saturating the bound are shown to be 1/4 supersymmetric

Brane physics in M-theory

The thesis begins with an introduction to M-theory (at a graduate student's level), starting from perturbative string theory and proceeding to dualities, D-branes and finally Matrix theory. The

BPS solutions of a D5-brane worldvolume in a D3-brane background from superalgebras

The BPS method is used to find BPS solutions of the worldvolume theory of a D5-brane in the near horizon geometry of a D3-brane. The BPS bound is interpreted in terms of the `maximally extended' D5

Tasi lectures on D-branes

This is an introduction to the properties of D-branes, topological defects in string theory on which string endpoints can live. D-branes provide a simple description of various nonperturbative
