nLab D0-D2 brane bound state




A bound state/brane intersection of D0-branes with D2-branes. Special case of Dp-D(p+2) brane bound states.


Myers effect

What is called the Myers effect (Myers 99) in string theory is the claimed phenomenon that given NN D0-branes in a constant background RR field F 4F_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 NN D0-branes (Myers 99, section 6, see p. 22, Myers 03, section 4).
