Four-brane and six-brane interactions in M(atrix) theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss the proposed description of configurations with four-branes and six-branes in M(atrix) theory. Computing the velocity dependent potential between these configurations and gravitons and membranes, we show that they agree with the short distance string results computed in type IIA string theory. Due to the "closeness" of these configuration to a supersymmetric configuration the M(atrix) theory reproduces the correct long distance behavior.
