## Idea

What is called the Myers effect (Myers 99) in string theory is the claimed phenomenon that given $N$ D0-branes in a constant background RR field $F_4$ (the field strength associated with D2-brane charge) with, crucially, nonabelian effects included, then these D0-branes expand into a fuzzy 2-sphere which represents a spherical D0-D2 brane bound state of a D2-brane and $N$ D0-branes (Myers 99, section 6, see p. 22, Myers 03, section 4).
