The different faces of branes in Double Field Theory Bergshoeff, Eric


We show how the Wess-Zumino terms of the different branes in string theory can be embedded within Double Field Theory. Crucial ingredients in our construction are the identification of the correct brane charge tensors and using the Double Field Theory potentials that arise from dualizing the standard Double Field Theory fields. This leads to a picture where under T-duality the brane does not change its worldvolume directions but where instead it shows different faces depending on whether some of the worldvolume and/or transverse directions invade the winding space.
