The D4-D8 brane system and five dimensional fixed points

Andreas Brandhuber, Yaron Oz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct dual Type I' string descriptions to five dimensional supersymmetric fixed points with ENf+1 global symmetry. The background is obtained as the near horizon geometry of the D4-D8 brane system in massive Type IIA supergravity. We use the dual description to deduce some properties of the fixed points.
