Abstract

We investigate half-supersymmetric domain wall solutions of three maximally supersymmetric D = 9 massive supergravity theories obtained by Scherk-Schwarz reduction of D = 10 IIB supergravity. The three theories have superpotentials leading to half-supersymmetric domain wall solutions, one of which has zero potential but non-zero superpotential.

The uplifting of these domain wall solutions to ten dimensions leads to three classes of half-supersymmetric type IIB 7-brane solutions. All solutions within each class are related by SL (2, R) transformations. The three classes together contain solutions carrying all possible (quantized) 7-brane charges. One class contains the well-known D7-brane solution and its dual partners and we provide the explicit solutions for the other two classes. The domain wall solution with zero potential lifts up to a half-supersymmetric conical space-time. The results in this talk are taken from [1].
