# Angel Uranga : Brane Configurations and Branes at Singularities

The dynamics of D branes moving in certain string theory backgrounds can be used to learn about supersymmetric field theories in several dimensions. In this talk I will center on the realization of four-dimensional N=2 and N=1 gauge field theories, by using two types of backgrounds. The first (`brane configurations') involves D branes in the presence of NS fivebranes, whereas the second involves D branes sitting at singular points. A wide variety of conformal theories with marginal couplings, and of finite N=1 theories arises from these constructions. I will also emphasize the equivalence of different constructions by T duality.
