Melvin Matrix Models
Abstract
In this short note we construct the DLCQ description of the flux sevenbranes in type IIA string theory and discuss its basic properties. The matrix model involves dipole fields. We explain the relation of this nonlocal matrix model to various orbifolds. We also give a spacetime interpretation of the SeibergWittenlike map, proposed in a different context first by Bergman and Ganor, that converts this matrix model to a local, highly nonlinear theory.
