One-loop adjoint masses for non-supersymmetric intersecting branes. (English) Zbl 1298.81230
Summary: We consider breaking of supersymmetry in intersecting D-brane configurations by slight deviation of the angles from their supersymmetric values. We compute the masses generated by radiative corrections for the adjoint scalars on the brane world-volumes. In the open string channel, the string two-point function receives contributions only from the infrared and the ultraviolet limits. The latter is due to tree-level closed string uncanceled NS-NS tadpoles, which we explicitly reproduce from the effective Born-Infeld action. On the other hand, the infrared region reproduces the one-loop mediation of supersymmetry breaking in the effective gauge theory, via messengers and their Kaluza-Klein excitations. In the toroidal set-up considered here, it receives contributions only from \(N \approx 4\) and \(N \approx 2\) supersymmetric configurations, and thus always leads at leading order to a tachyonic direction, in agreement with effective field theory expectations.
