A bstractWe clarify a Wess-Zumino-Witten-like structure including Ramond fields and propose one systematic way to construct gauge invariant actions: Wess-Zumino-Witten-like complete action SWZW. We show that Kunitomo-Okawa’s action proposed in arXiv:1508.00366 can obtain a topological parameter dependence of Ramond fields and belongs to our WZW-like framework. In this framework, once a WZW-like functional Aη=AηΨ$$ {\mathcal{A}}_{\eta }={\mathcal{A}}_{\eta}\left[\Psi \right] $$ of a dynamical… Expand
