Coarsening versus pattern formationJan 22 2015Mar 13 2015It is known that similar physical systems can reveal two quite different ways of behavior, either coarsening, which creates a uniform state or a large-scale structure, or formation of ordered or disordered patterns, which are never homogenized. We present ... More

Magnetic levitation induced by negative permeabilityJan 04 2011In this paper we study the interaction between a point magnetic dipole and a semi-infinite metamaterial using the method of images. We obtain analytical expressions for the levitation force for an arbitrarily oriented dipole. Surprisingly the maximal ... More

On semiclassical approximation and spinning string vertex operators in AdS_5 x S^5Apr 16 2003Apr 26 2003Following earlier work by Polyakov and Gubser, Klebanov and Polyakov, we attempt to clarify the structure of vertex operators representing string states which have large (``semiclassical'') values of AdS energy (equal to 4-d dimension \Delta) and angular ...

R^4 terms in 11 dimensions and conformal anomaly of (2,0) theoryMay 08 2000Mar 30 2005Using AdS_7/CFT_6 correspondence we discuss computation of a subleading O(N) term in the scale anomaly of (2,0) theory describing N coincident M5 branes. While the leading O(N^3) contribution to the anomaly is determined by the supergravity action, the ... More

On non-abelian generalisation of Born-Infeld action in string theoryJan 23 1997Jan 29 1997We show that the part of the tree-level open string effective action for the non-abelian vector field which depends on the field strength but not on its covariant derivatives, is given by the symmetrised trace of the direct non-abelian generalisation ...

On the structure of composite black p-brane configurations and related black holesNov 14 1996Jan 14 1997We comment on the structure of intersecting black p-brane solutions in string theory explaining how known solutions can be obtained from Schwarzschild solution simply by sequences of boosts and dualities. This implies, in particular, that dimensional ... More

Self-duality of Born-Infeld action and Dirichlet 3-brane of type IIB superstring theoryFeb 13 1996Mar 28 1996D-brane actions depend on a world-volume abelian vector field and are described by Born-Infeld-type actions. We consider the vector field duality transformations of these actions. Like the usual 2d scalar duality rotations of isometric string coordinates ... More

Black holes and exact solutions in string theoryOct 03 1994We review some recent results about exact classical solutions in string theory. In particular, we consider four dimensional extremal electric black holes which are related via dimensional reduction to the exact five dimensional fundamental string solutions. ... More

On `rolling moduli' solutions in string cosmologyMay 01 1994Given a static string solution with some free constant parameters (`moduli') it may be possible to construct a time-dependent solution by just replacing the moduli by some functions of time. We present several examples when such `rolling moduli' ansatz ... More

Magnetic backgrounds and tachyonic instabilities in closed string theoryAug 20 2001Aug 29 2001We discuss some aspects of closed superstrings in Melvin-type magnetic backgrounds. A 2-parameter family of such NS-NS backgrounds are exactly solvable as weakly coupled string models with the spectrum containing tachyonic modes. Magnetic field allows ... More

Type IIB instanton as a wave in twelve dimensionsDec 15 1996Dec 19 19960-brane of type IIA string theory can be interpreted as a dimensional reduction of a gravitational wave in 11 dimensions. We observe that a similar interpretation applies also to the D-instanton background of type IIB theory: it can be viewed as a reduction ... More
