D-Branes, Tachyons, and String Field Theory

D-Branes, Tachyons, and String Field Theory
by Washington Taylor, Barton Zwiebach

Publisher: arXiv 2004
Number of pages: 104

Description:
In these notes we provide a pedagogical introduction to the subject of tachyon condensation in Witten's cubic bosonic open string field theory. We use both the low-energy Yang-Mills description and the language of string field theory to explain the problem of tachyon condensation on unstable D-branes.
