nLab K-matrix model




A matrix model for D-brane (D-instanton) dynamics in string theory which takes the classification of D-brane charge in topological K-theory into acount (Asakawa-Sugimoto-Terashima 01)

matrix models for brane dynamics:

D-branematrix model
D0-braneBFSS matrix model,
BMN matrix model
D(-1)-braneIKKT matrix model
D4-branenuclear matrix model
M-branematrix model
D2-branemembrane matrix model
