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-brane | matrix model |
---|---|

D0-brane | BFSS matrix model, BMN matrix model |

D(-1)-brane | IKKT matrix model |

D4-brane | nuclear matrix model |

M-brane | matrix model |
---|---|

D2-brane | membrane matrix model |
