Interaction of Dynamical Fractional Branes with Background Fields: Superstring CalculationsApr 15 2017Jul 23 2017We compute the boundary state corresponding to a fractional D$p$-brane with transverse motion and internal background fields: Kalb-Ramond and a $U(1)$ gauge field. The spacetime has the orbifold structure $\mathbb{R}^{1,5} \times\mathbb{C}^{2}/\mathbb{Z}_{2}$. ... More

Moving Fractional Branes with Background Fields: Interaction and Tachyon CondensationAug 09 2015Jul 19 2017We calculate the bosonic boundary state corresponding to a moving fractional D$p$-brane in a partially orbifoldized spacetime $\mathbb{R}^{1, d-5} \times\mathbb{C}^{2}/\mathbb{Z}_{2}$ in the presence of the Kalb-Ramond field, the $U(1)$ gauge potential ...
