Brane world effective actions for D-branes with fluxes

Regular Seminar Rodolfo Russo (Queen Mary)

13:05 KCL
room 423

I will discuss how to use string techniques to systematically derive brane world effective actions for models with magnetized (or equivalently intersecting) D-branes. In particular, I derive the dependence on all NS-NS moduli of the kinetic terms of the chiral matter in a generic non-supersymmetric brane configurations with non-commuting open string fluxes. Near a N=1 supersymmetric point the effective action contains D and F term breaking terms which can be explicitly computed with string diagrams.
