The classical solutions representing single D-branes in vacuum string field theory

Partha Mukhopadhyay (Penn State)


A brief review of the tachyon conjectures made by Sen and the conjecture of vacuum string field theory (VSFT) made by Rastelli, Sen and Zwiebach in the context of (25+1) dimensional bosonic string theory will be given. Then two methods of constructing single D-brane solutions in VSFT will be presented. These are called oscillator and boundary CFT constructions. Finally a method of translating the BCFT construction into the oscillator expression for a D-brane solution corresponding to an arbitrary BCFT will be presented.
