### Dual D-brane actions in nonrelativistic string theory

##### Posted by Quinn Sena in category: quantum physics

Year 2022 This is getting interesting for sure :3.

We study worldvolume actions for D-branes coupled to the worldvolume U gauge field and Ramond-Ramond (RR) potentials in nonrelativistic string theory. This theory is a self-contained corner of relativistic string theory and has a string spectrum with a Galilean-invariant dispersion relation. We therefore refer to such D-branes in nonrelativistic string theory as nonrelativistic D-branes. We focus on the bosonic fields in spacetime and also couple the D-branes to general closed string geometry, Kalb-Ramond, and dilaton background fields. We dualize nonrelativistic D-branes by performing a duality transformation on the worldvolume U gauge field and uncover novel dual D-brane actions. This generalizes familiar properties, such as the SL(2, ℤ) duality in Type IIB superstring theory and the relation between Type IIA superstring and M-theory, to nonrelativistic string and M-theory.
