In summary, higher dimensional branes, such as the super membrane and the NS5/M5 brane, have wave functions described by the quantum field theory of their vibrations. However, these branes become unstable once they are quantized, leading to the absence of wave functions for branes with more than one dimension. Therefore, discussions about the "worldvolume theory" of a brane are essentially discussions about its wavefunction.

Higher dimensional branes, also known as D-branes, are objects in string theory that exist in more than three dimensions. They are extended objects that can have any number of dimensions, including 1, 2, 3, and higher.

Regular branes, or B-branes, are also objects in string theory but they are restricted to three dimensions. Higher dimensional branes have additional dimensions and therefore have a more complex structure and behavior.

A wave function is a mathematical function that describes the quantum state of a system. It represents the probability amplitude of a particle or system being in a certain state. In the context of higher dimensional branes, the wave function describes the probability of the brane existing in a particular dimension.

Yes, higher dimensional branes can have different wave functions depending on the number of dimensions they exist in and their specific properties. Just like regular particles can have different wave functions, branes can also have unique wave functions.

Higher dimensional branes with wave functions play a crucial role in string theory and can help explain the behavior of particles and forces in the universe. They also provide a potential framework for understanding the concept of multiple dimensions and the structure of space-time.
