Dilatonic p-brane solitons Academic Article uri icon


  • We find new 4-brane and 5-brane solitons in massive gauged D = 6, N = 2 and D = 7, N = 1 supergravities. In each case, the solutions preserve half of the original supersymmetry. These solutions make use of the metric and dilaton fields only. We also present more general dilatonic (D - 2)-branes in D dimensions.
