Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: alpha' Corrections to D-brane Solutions

Presented by Annamaria Sinkovics (Swansea),

9 November 2001 13:00 in CM221

"I will talk about the computation of the leading order alpha' corrections to supergravity p-brane solutions. alpha' corrections appear as higher derivative terms in the low energy effective action of string theories, the leading such term being R^4. The p-brane solutions in general receive correction, which may have implications on many problems involving p-brane solutions, as for example on black hole solutions and their properties."
