Abstract

We set up the BPS equations for a D3-brane moving in AdS 5 × S 5 which preserves two supercharges and with all bosonic fields turned on in the world-volume theory.

By solving these, we find generalizations of Mikhailov giants and wobbling dual-giants that include electromagnetic waves propagating on their world-volume. For these giants (dual- giants) we show that the BPS field strength is the real part of the pull-back of a holomorphic 2-form in the ambient space \( {\mathbb{C}^{{3}}}({\mathbb{C}^{{{1},{2}}}}) \) onto the world-volume.
