Bound states of strings and pbranes
Abstract
The recent discovery of an explicit conformal field theory description of Type II pbranes makes it possible to investigate the existence of bound states of such objects. In particular, it is possible with reasonable precision to verify the prediction that the Type IIB superstring in ten dimensions has a family of soliton and bound state strings permuted by SL(2, Z) . The spacetime coordinates enter tantalizingly in the formalism as noncommuting matrices.
