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
Gauge reducibility of superstring field theory and Batalin-Vilkovisky master action
In this paper, we show that there exists a hidden gauge reducibility in superstring field theory based on the small dynamical string field $\Psi \in \mathcal{H}_{\beta \gamma }$ whose gauge variationExpand
A∞/L∞ structure and alternative action for WZW-like superstring field theory

Type II superstring field theory with cyclic $L_\infty$ structure

Concerning the ghost contribution to the one-loop integrands in open string field theory
We examine the ghost contribution to the one-loop integrands in open string field theory using the Moyal representation of the star product. We primarily focus on the open string tadpole integrand,Expand

New Representation for String Field Solves the Consistency Problem for Open Superstring Field Theory
Abstract We modify Witten's action for the NSR superstring. Our proposal is based on the use of new “double-step” picture-changing operators. The modified action, in contrast to Witten's, generates NExpand

Superstring Field Theory
Abstract Superstring field theories are formulated in terms of light-cone-gauge superfields that are functionals of string coordinates x ( σ ) and ϑ ( σ ). The formalism used preserves only theExpand
