Constant magnetic field in closed string theory : an exactly solvable model

  title={Constant magnetic field in closed string theory : an exactly solvable model},
  author={Jorge G. Russo and A. A. Tseytlin},
We consider a simple model describing a closed bosonic string in a constant magnetic field. Exact conformal invariance demands also the presence of a non-trivial metric and antisymmetric tensor (induced by the magnetic field). The model is invariant under target space duality in a compact Kaluza-Klein direction introduced to couple the magnetic field. Like open string theory in a constant gauge field, or closed string theory on a torus, this model can be straightforwardly quantized and solved… CONTINUE READING
