Can someone explain to me how is it possible for D-branes to be parametrized with matrix coordinates? I mean, D-brane is a surface embedded in ordinary space, no? And the coordinates of ordinary space are vectors. So how can those vector coordinates suddenly turn into matrix ones on a D-brane?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
