D-brane/O-plane effective actions, disc amplitudes and T-duality

Becker, K (Texas A&M University)
Thursday 12 January 2012, 10:00-11:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I will be discussing the computation of superstring scattering amplitudes in the presence of D-branes and orientifold planes. The results encode certain terms in the low energy effective actions of space-time fields localized on branes/planes. I will describe some of these interactions and show how they restore compatibility with T-duality.
