  • More interestingly, we showed that some of the spacetimes that are solutions to this theory contain a four-dimensional universe that lives behind the event horizon of an extended object, a “p-brane” or “black brane,” that is embedded in a background D-dimensional spacetime.

    Making Extra Dimensions Disappear

  • Then the modes of one type of string are compatible with the vibrations on the p-brane, and since these are compatible with vibrations of another string type these p-branes define S or T duality relationships between strings.

    Science and Unobservable Things

  • Do Germany, Argentina, and the United States lag behind in theoretical physics because standard German, Spanish, and English don't have words for "p-brane"? BLACK ENGLISH.

  • However, a belief in M-theory automatically begs the acceptance of Parallel Universes as each p-brane is a "universe" onto itself. Stories / Popular
