ND Tadpoles as New String States and Quantum Mechanical Particle-Wave Duality from World-Sheet T-Duality

Abstract:

We consider new objects in bosonic open string theory -- ND tadpoles, which have N(euman) boundary conditions at one end of the world-sheet and D(irichlet) at the other, must exist due to s-t duality in a string theory with both NN strings and D-branes. We demonstrate how to interpolate between N and D boundary conditions. In the case of mixed boundary conditions the action for a quantum particle is induced on the boundary. Quantum-mechanical particle-wave duality, a dual description of a qua...
