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.

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).

A prominent example is the solution found by Erler and Maccaferri [2] which covers wide range of open string backgrounds such as marginal deformation, D-brane lump, and multiple D-branes.
In this paper, we are interested in ghost D-branes, which are rather different from D-branes in conventional BCFTs.
Type IIA open strings are attached to structures called D-branes.
OPEN STRINGS, D-BRANES, ENDPOINTS: A DREAM PERSPECTIVE
Among the topics are D-branes and K-theory in two-dimensional topological field theory, open strings and Dirichlet branes, metric aspects of Calabi-Yau manifolds, and the mathematics of homological mirror symmetry.
Typical examples of such cases include an open string attached to D-branes in the presence of background B-field inducing noncommutativity in its both end points [12-15], the quantum Hall effect [16] and the DKP oscillator [17].

D-branes described by Non-abelian Born-Infeld (BI) action [1] have many fascinating features.
Finally, generalizations of the Dirac-Konstant and Klein-Gordon-like equations relevant to the physics of D-branes and Matrix Models are presented.
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.
