Abstract

We investigate dynamics of membrane with cohomogeneity-one symmetry. The cohomogeneity-one membrane has world surface foliated by two-dimensional orbits of isometry group. We show that the Nambu-Goto equations of motion reduce to geodesic equations in the orbit space. We also clarify the form of the metric provided to the orbit space. The generalization to higher dimensional object with cohomogeneity-one symmetry in higher dimensional spacetime is discussed.
