Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Welding branes

Presented by "Robert Helling (DAMTP, Cambridge)",

21 November 2003 13:00 in CM221

We derive the full the world volume field theory of intersecting D-branes including the massless string localised at the intersection. From the D- and F-term conditions we find the different branches of moduli space including a Higgs branch on which the intersection is resolved and the two branes merge into one wrapping a calibrated cycle of the background geometry.
