Abstract

The action for a non-BPS p = 2 brane embedded in a flat N= 1, D = 4 target superspace is obtained through the method of nonlinear realizations of the associated super-Poincaré symmetries. The brane excitation modes correspond to the Nambu-Goldstone degrees of freedom resulting from the broken space translational symmetry and the target space supersymmetries. The action for this p = 2 brane is found to be an invariant synthesis of the Akulov-Volkov and Nambu-Goto actions. The dual D2-brane Born-Infeld action is derived. The invariant coupling of matter fields localized on the brane to the Nambu-Goldstone modes is also obtained.
