Strings and branes are waves
MetadataShow full item record
We examine the equations of motion of double field theory and the duality manifest form of M-theory. We show the solutions of the equations of motion corresponding to null waves correspond to strings or membranes from the usual spacetime perspective. A Goldstone mode analysis of the null wave solution in double field theory produces the equations of motion of the duality manifest string.
