    Abstract

    We present the time-dependent solutions corresponding to the dynamical D-brane with angles in ten-dimensional typeII supergravity theories. Our solutions with angles are different from the known dynamical intersecting brane solutions in supergravity theories. Because of our ansatz for fields, all warp factors in the solutions can depend on time. Applying these solutions, we construct cosmological models from those solutions by smearing some dimensions and compactifying the internal space. We find the Friedmann-Lemaître- Robertson-Walker cosmological solutions with power-law expansion. We also discuss the dynamics of branes based on these solutions. When the spacetime is contracting in ten dimensions, each brane approaches the others as the time evolves. However, for a Dp-brane (p≤7) without smearing branes, a singularity appears before branes collide. In contrast, the D6-D8-brane system or the smeared D(p-2)-Dp-brane system with one uncompactified extra dimension can provide an example of colliding branes (and collision of the universes), if they have the same charges.
