  Abstract:
We use recently proposed translations isometries of pp-waves to construct D4 and D3 brane solutions, using T-duality transformations, in exactly solvable pp-wave background originating from AdS3×S3 geometry. A unique property of the new brane solutions is the breaking of SO(10-p-1) symmetry in the transverse direction of the branes due to the presence of constant NS-NS and R-R background fluxes. We verify that the our `localized' solutions satisfy the field equations and explicitly present the corresponding Killing spinors. We also show the connection of our results to certain M5-branes in pp-wave geometry.
