Gravitating pbranes
Abstract
Coset methods are used to construct the action describing the dynamics associated with the spontaneous breaking of the local Poincare symmetries of D dimensional spacetime due to the embedding of a pbrane with codimension N=Dp1. The resulting action is an ISO(1,p+N) invariant form of the EinsteinHilbert action, which, in addition to the gravitational vielbein, also includes N massive gauge fields corresponding to the broken space translation symmetries which together carry the fundamental representation of the unbroken SO(N) gauge symmetry and an SO(N) YangMills field localized on the brane. The long wavelength dynamics of the gravitating pbrane is the same as the action of an SO(N) vector massive Proca field and a nonAbelian SO(N) YangMills field all coupled to gravity in d=(1+p) dimensional spacetime. The general results are specialized to determine the effective action for the gravitating vortex solution in the D=6 Abelian HiggsKibble model.

Fivedimensional theories manifesting spontaneous brane generation are discussed in a gravitational context. Without gravity, the IR dynamics of the brane fluctuation below the brane tension scale is described by an effective theory for the NambuGoldstone modes. When gravity is properly taken into account, the longdistance dynamics changes. The spontaneous breaking of local translational invariance triggers the formation of massive representations via the Higgs mechanism and induces the appearance of new mass scales in the IR. These scales can in principle depend on other fundamental parameters besides the brane tension and the Planck mass. In noncompact extra dimensions the massive statesmore »

Thick branes from selfgravitating scalar fields
The formation of a domain wall ('thick brane') induced by scalar matter dynamics and triggered by a thin brane defect is considered in noncompact fivedimensional spacetime with warped AdS type geometry. The scalar matter is composed of two fields with softly broken O(2) symmetry and minimal coupling to gravity. The nonperturbative effects in the invariant mass spectrum of light localized scalar states are investigated for different values of the tension of the thin brane defect. Especially interesting is the case of the thin brane with negative tension when the singular barriers form a potential well with two infinitely tall wallsmore » 
Supersymmetry enhancement of Dpbranes and Mbranes
We examine the supersymmetry of classical Dbrane and Mbrane configurations and explain the dependence of Killing spinors on coordinates. We find that onehalf supersymmetry is broken in the bulk and that supersymmetry near the Dbrane horizon is restored for p{le}3, for solutions in the stringy frame, but only for p=3 in the tendimensional canonical frame. We study the enhancement for the case of four intersecting D3branes in ten dimensions and the implication of this for the size of the infinite throat of the near horizon geometry in noncompactified theory. We find some indications of universality of near horizon geometries ofmore » 
A note on intersections of Sbranes with pbranes
We first investigate intersections of an Sbrane with a single pbrane and show that in addition to the already known solutions, it is possible to place the Sbrane so that the radial part of the pbrane is not included in its world volume. This leads to a new set of solutions. Second, we consider intersections of an Sbrane with a supersymmetric Dp{sub 1}Dp{sub 2} intersection and find the list of allowed solutions for both positions of the Sbrane. Among them there are D1D5S1 and D1D5S5 intersections which might be appropriate for studying time dependent AdS/CFT correspondence. 
Gaugecovariant WessZumino actions for super pbranes in superspace
In this paper the authors present a general method of constructing manifestly worldvolume supersymmetric actions of superbranes, starting form some higherdimensional field theories in which the partial breaking of global supersymmetry (PBGS) comes about. The authors' approach is based upon a substitution of the superspace coordinates which relates linear and nonlinear realizations of PBGS. As instructive examples the authors consider the massive d = 2 superparticle (p = 0) and d = 4 superstring (p = 1). The relevant worldline and worldsheet superfield actions naturally appear as alongwavelength limit of the superfield actions of some two and fourdimensional supersymmetric fieldmore »
