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.

The D3-brane is both an electrically charged brane and a magnetic monopole, which separates it from the other branes.
It's known in the literature that there are many different but physically equivalent descriptions of how a D1-brane may end on a D3-brane. From the point of view of the D3 brane the configuration is described by a monopole on its world volume.
It was showed in [10] that the BI action, when taken as the fundamental action, can be used to build a configuration with a semi-infinite fundamental string ending on a D3-brane [11].
The solutions of the equation of motion of the scalar fields [[phi].sub.i], i = 1, 2, 3 represent the D-string expanding into a D3-brane analogous to the bion solution of the D3-brane theory [2, 3].
To get D3-branes from D-strings, we use the non-abelian BI action
