Finally, in the conclusion 5, we present the generalizations of the Dirac-Konstant equations (and their "square" Klein-Gordon type equations) that are relevant to the incorporation of fermions and the physics of D-branes and Matrix Models.
D-Branes is a fanciful depiction of a mathematical object used in String Theory, an advanced branch of Cosmology.
