Title: New Born-Infeld and Dp-brane actions under 2-metric and 3-metric prescriptions

Abstract

The parent action method is utilized to the Born-Infeld and Dp-brane theories. Various new forms of Born-Infeld and Dp-brane actions are derived by using this systematic approach, in which both the already known 2-metric and newly proposed 3-metric prescriptions are considered. An auxiliary worldvolume tensor field, denoted by {omega}{sub {mu}}{sub {nu}}, is introduced and treated probably as an additional worldvolume metric because it plays a similar role to that of the auxiliary worldvolume (also called intrinsic) metric {gamma}{sub {mu}}{sub {nu}}. Some properties, such as duality, permutation and Weyl invariance as a local worldvolume symmetry of the new forms are analyzed. In particular, a new symmetry, i.e. the double Weyl invariance is discovered in 3-metric forms.

  • We consider certain supersymmetric Born-Infeld couplings to the D3 brane action and show that they give rise to massless and massive KK excitations of type IIB on AdS{sub 5}{times}S{sub 5}, in terms of primary singleton Yang-Mills superfields. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • In this note, we investigate the homogeneous radial dynamics of (Dp, NS5) systems without and with one compactified transverse direction, in the framework of Dirac-Born-Infeld effective action. During the homogeneous evolution, the electric field on the D-brane is always conserved and the radial motion could be reduced to a one-dimension dynamical system with an effective potential. When the Dp-brane energy is not high, the brane moves in a restricted region, with the orbits depending on the conserved energy, angular momentum through the form of the effective potential. When the Dp-brane energy is high enough, it can escape to infinity. Itmore » turns out that the conserved angular momentum plays an interesting role in the dynamics. Moreover, we discuss the gauge dynamics around the tachyon vacuum and find that the dynamics is very reminiscent of the string fluid in the rolling tachyon case.« less
  • We compare the infrared Dirac-Born-Infeld brane inflation model to observations using a Bayesian analysis. The current data cannot distinguish it from the {lambda}CDM model but is able to give interesting constraints on various microscopic parameters including the mass of the brane moduli potential, the fundamental string scale, the charge or warp factor of throats, and the number of the mobile branes. We quantify some distinctive testable predictions with stringy signatures, such as the large non-Gaussianity, and the large, but regional, running of the spectral index. These results illustrate how we may be able to probe aspects of string theory usingmore » cosmological observations.« less
  • The accelerated expansion of the Universe together with its present day isotropy has posed an interesting challenge to the numerous model theories presented over the years to describe them. In this paper, we address the above questions in the context of a braneworld model where the Universe is filled with Born-Infeld matter. We show that in such a model, the Universe evolves from a highly anisotropic state to its present isotropic form, which has entered an accelerated expanding phase.
  • We investigate magnetic monopole solutions of the non-Abelian Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) action describing two coincident non-BPS D9-branes in flat space. Just as in the case of kink and vortex solitonic tachyon solutions of the full DBI non-BPS actions, as previously analyzed by Sen, these monopole configurations are singular in the first instance and require regularization. We discuss a suitable non-Abelian ansatz that describes a pointlike magnetic monopole and show it solves the equations of motion to leading order in the regularization parameter. Fluctuations are studied and shown to describe a codimension three BPS D6-brane, and a formula is derived for itsmore » tension.« less
