Gauge symmetries in extended objects

Technical Report:

Abstract

Some general aspects of p-dimensionally extended objects (p-branes) described by the Nambu-Goto action are discussed. The physical meaning of a large number of gauge degrees of freedom inherent in the Lagrangian is examined. The potential instability of relativistic balls (p=3) and membranes (p=2) is explained, and a possible stabilizing mechanism of these objects is discussed. (author).
