Abstract

This thesis describes the construction of supersymmetric world-volume actions for various kinds of extended objects that appear in string theory, the so-called p-branes, D-branes and M-branes. We also present an application of branes to computing the spectrum of a conformal field theory in the context of the AdS-CFT correspondence.
