Abstract

It is known that in the Minkowski vacuum a bunch of IIA superstrings with DO-branes can be blown-up to a supersymmetric tubular D2-brane, which is supported against collapse by the angular momentum generated by crossed electric and magnetic Born-Infeld fields. In this paper we show how the multiple, smaller tubes with relative angular momentum could condense to a single, larger tube to stabilize the system. Such a phenomena could also be shown in the systems under the Melvin magnetic-tube or uniform magnetic field background However, depending on the magnitude of field strength, a tube in the uniform magnetic field background may split into multiple, smaller tubes with relative angular momentum to stabilize the system.
