Branes on \(G\)-manifolds. (English) Zbl 1370.57015

Author’s abstract: Let \(X\) be a Calabi-Yau manifold acted on by a group \(G\). We give a definition of \(G\)-equivariance for branes on \(X\), and assign to each equivariant brane an element of the equivariant cohomology of \(X\) that can be considered as a charge of the brane. We prove that the spaces of strings stretching between equivariant branes support representations of \(G\). This fact allows us to give formulas for the dimension of some of such spaces, when \(X\) is a flag manifold of \(G\).
