High Energy Physics - Theory

Title: Komaba Lectures on Noncommutative Solitons and D-Branes

Abstract: These lectures provide an introduction to noncommutative geometry and its origins in quantum mechanics and to the construction of solitons in noncommutative field theory. These ideas are applied to the construction of D-branes as solitons of the tachyon field in noncommutative open string theory. A brief discussion is given of the K-theory classification of D-brane charge in terms of the K-theory of operator algebras. Based on lectures presented at the Komaba 2000 workshop, Nov. 14-16 2000.
