D-brane

[′dē‚brān]
(particle physics)
In superstring theory, a point, curve, surface, or higher-dimensional surface to which the end points of strings can be attached; its existence is implied by string duality.

In the context of time dependence in string theory from the effective D-brane action, we expect that the hyperplanes can fluctuate in shape and position as dynamical objects.
We showed in section 2 that the semi-infinite fuzzy funnel is a minimum energy configuration by imposing singular boundary conditions that have interesting physical interpretation in terms of D-brane geometries.
Consequently, we can suggest that the presence of the electric field changes the background of D-branes from flat to supergravity background (where the string coupling is strong).
