Local String Field Theory
We consider open bosonic strings. The non-interacting multi-string theory is described by certain free string field operators which we construct. These are shown to have local commutators with
Locality in free string field theory
Free string field operators are constructed for the open bosonic string in the light cone gauge in any dimension. These are naturally localized by the center of mass coordinate. Relative to this
Locality in Free String Field Theory - II
Abstract. We study the covariant free bosonic string field theory and explore its locality (causality) properties. We find string fields which are strictly local and covariant, but act on an
A ug 2 00 3 Local String Field Theory
We consider open bosonic strings. The non-interacting multi-string theory is described by certain free string field operators which we construct. These are shown to have local commutators with
Symmetry and causality in pp‐wave string field theory
Causality and local commutativity of string fields in the pp‐wave lightcone string field theory is Contrary to the flat space case result, we found that the pp‐wave interaction does not affect the
Local commutativity and causality in interacting PP-wave string field theory
In this paper, we extend our previous study of causality and local commutativity of string fields in the pp-wave lightcone string field theory to include interaction. Contrary to the flat space case
Space and time from translation symmetry
We show that the notions of space and time in algebraic quantum field theory arise from translation symmetry if we assume asymptotic commutativity. We argue that this construction can be applied to

Locality in quantum gravity and string theory
Breakdown of local physics in string theory at distances longer than the string scale is investigated. Such nonlocality would be expected to be visible in ultrahigh-energy scattering. The results of

We present an entirely new kind of field theory, a field theory quantized not at space-time points, but quantized along an extended set of multilocal points on a string. This represents a significant
