Layered Phase Investigations

Presenter: Stam Nicolis — CNRS-LMPT Tours

Anisotropic gauge theories, whose groups contain a U(1) factor are expected to realize a layered phase. An interesting question is whether the layers may carry a topological charge and this question is studied numerically in order to see, whether they may be promoted to D-branes. A comparison is made with theories with global charges, such as that of a scalar field, when passing from 1+1 to 2+1 dimensions.
