### STRING FIELD THEORY : AN INTRODUCTION

- Physics
- 2008

In these introductory notes I explain some basic ideas in string field theory. These include: the concept of a string field, the issue of background independence, the reason why minimal area metrics…

### The chiral ring of AdS3/CFT2 and the attractor mechanism

- Physics
- 2008

We study the moduli dependence of the chiral ring in N = (4, 4) superconformal field theories, with special emphasis on those CFT's that are dual to type IIB string theory on AdS(3) x S-3 x X-4. The…

### The Algebra of Diffeomorphisms from theWorld Sheet

- Mathematics
- 2018

The quantum theory of a massless spin two particle is strongly constrained by diffeomorphism invariance, which is in turn implied by unitarity. We explicitly exhibit the space-time diffeomorphism…

Toroidal backgrounds for bosonic strings are used to understand target space duality as a symmetry of string field theory and to study explicitly issues in background independence. Our starting point…

### Equations of motion for the heterotic string theory from the conformal invariance of the sigma model.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 1985

In the presence of arbitrary background gauge, gravitational, and antisymmetric tensor fields, the heterotic string may be described by a two-dimensional local field theory and the appearance of the Chern-Simons three-forms in the classical equations of motion is shown to be related to the chiral anomaly in two- dimensional gauge theories.
