Absorption by branes and Schwinger terms in the world volume theory
Physics Letters B
We study how coincident Dirichlet 3-branes absorb incident gravitons polarized along their world volume. We show that the absorption cross-section is determined by the central term in the correlator of two stress-energy tensors. The existence of a non-renormalization theorem for this central charge in four-dimensional N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories shows that the leading term at low energies in the absorption cross-section is not renormalized. This guarantees that the agreement of thedoi:10.1016/s0370-2693(97)01099-x fatcat:6w3e4dazpbhltjzd6vu7gdqks4
