Brane

In theoretical physics, a brane is a physical object that generalizes the notion of a point particle to higher dimensions. For example, a point particle can be viewed as a brane of dimension zero, while a string can be viewed as a brane of dimension one. It is also possible to consider higher-dimensional branes. In dimension p, these are called p-...

brane

Any of the extended objects that arise in string theory. A 0-brane is just a point particle, a 1-brane is a string, a 2-brane is a membrane, a 3-brane has three extended dimensions, etc. More generally, a p-brane has p spatial dimensions. In the low energy effective supergravity theory of a string...
