Gravitational Couplings of D-branes and O-planes

Stefanski, B. (1999). Gravitational Couplings of D-branes and O-planes. Nuclear Physics B, 548(1-3), pp. 275-290. doi: 10.1016/s0550-3213(99)00147-9


An explicit calculation is performed to check all the tangent bundle gravitational couplings of Dirichlet branes and Orientifold planes by scattering $q$ gravitons with a $p+1$ form Ramond-Ramond potential in the world-volume of a $D(p+2q)$-brane. The structure of the D-brane Wess-Zumino term in the world-volume action is confirmed, while a different O-plane Wess-Zumino action is obtained.
