Lorentz invariant supersymmetric mechanism for non(anti)commutative deformations of space-time geometryJun 15 2005Jun 19 2005A supersymmetric Lorentz invariant mechanism for superspace deformations is proposed. It is based on an extension of superspace by one $\lambda_{a}$ or several Majorana spinors associated with the Penrose twistor picture. Some examples of Lorentz invariant ... More
Branes as solutions of gauge theories in gravitational fieldJul 26 2013Sep 21 2014The idea of the Gauss map is unified with the concept of branes as hypersurfaces embedded into $D$-dimensional Minkowski space. The map introduces new generalized coordinates of branes alternative to their world vectors $\mathbf{x}$ and identified with ... More
The $θ$-twistor versus the supertwistorDec 02 2006We introduce the $\theta$-twistor which is a new supersymmetric generalization of the Penrose twistor and is also alternative to the supertwistor. The $\theta$-twistor is a triple of {\it spinors} including the spinor $\theta$ extending the Penrose's ... More
