Superspace or One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry

- S. Gates, M. Grisaru, M. Roček, W. Siegel
- Physics
- 1 May 1983

The 1983 book, free at last, with corrections and bookmarks. From the original troff, but now with CM (TeX) fonts.

Classical superstring mechanics

- W. Siegel
- Physics
- 13 January 1986

Abstract We describe the classical mechanics of the superstring in both hamiltonian and lagrangian formulations, including massless external fields. The formulation is a modification of that of Green… Expand

Bouncing universes in string-inspired gravity

- T. Biswas, A. Mazumdar, W. Siegel
- Physics
- 26 August 2005

We consider the effects on cosmology of higher-derivative modifications of (effective) gravity that make it asymptotically free without introducing ghosts. The weakening of gravity at short distances… Expand

Supersymmetric Dimensional Regularization via Dimensional Reduction

- W. Siegel
- Physics
- 18 June 1979

We introduce a modified form of dimensional regularization which manifestly preserves gauge invariance, unitarity, and global supersymmetry. The prescription is that the action which results from… Expand

Improved Methods for Supergraphs

- M. Grisaru, W. Siegel, M. Roček
- Physics
- 19 November 1979

We introduce some new techniques into superfield perturbation theory which allow considerable simplifications in calculations. As a result, we show that all contributions to the effective action can… Expand

Supertwistor space for 6D maximal super Yang-Mills

- Tristan Dennen, Y. Huang, W. Siegel
- Physics
- 14 October 2009

Abstract6 dimensional maximal super Yang-Mills on-shell amplitudes are formulated in superspace using 6 dimensional spinors. The 3,4,5-point tree amplitudes are obtained by supersymmetrizing their… Expand

Doubled α′-geometry

- O. Hohm, W. Siegel, B. Zwiebach
- Physics
- 12 June 2013

A bstractWe develop doubled-coordinate field theory to determine the α′ corrections to the massless sector of oriented bosonic closed string theory. Our key tool is a string current algebra of free… Expand

Variant superfield representations

Abstract We discuss some variant superfield representations which can arise by the replacement of some of the usual fields in a multiplet with p-form gauge fields.

Gauge spinor superfield as scalar multiplet

- W. Siegel
- Physics
- 27 August 1979

Abstract A chiral spinor superfield, with an appropriate gauge invariance, describes a scalar multiplet consisting of a scalar, an antisymmetric-tensor gauge field, a Weyl spinor, and no auxiliary… Expand

Factorization of chiral string amplitudes

- Y. Huang, W. Siegel, Ellis Ye Yuan
- Physics
- 8 March 2016

A bstractWe re-examine a closed-string model defined by altering the boundary conditions for one handedness of two-dimensional propagators in otherwise-standard string theory. We evaluate the… Expand
