Peter Miller : The Zero-Brane as a Soliton

We present an exact construction of the D0-brane as a soliton on the worldvolume of a BPS D2-brane in the presence of a large B field. We match the mass and spectrum of fluctuations of this soliton to the D0-D2 conformal field theory. This spectrum includes a tachyon: the endpoint of tachyon condensation represents the ``disappearance'' of the D0-brane, and all modes associated with it, as it dissolves in the D2-brane. This construction thus sheds some light on issues related to tachyon condensation.
