Interaction of moving Dbranes on orbifolds
Abstract
We use the boundary state formalism to study the interaction of two moving identical Dbranes in the Type II superstring theory compactified on orbifolds. By computing the velocity dependence of the amplitude in the limit of large separation we can identify the nature of the different forces between the branes. In particular, in the Z_{3} orbifold case we find a boundary state which is coupled only to the N = 2 graviton multiplet containing just a graviton and a vector like in the extremal ReissnerNordström configuration. We also discuss other cases including T_{4}/Z_{2}.
