Construction of bosonic string theory on infinitely curved Anti-de Sitter space


Free scalar field theory in the sector with a large number of particles can be interpreted as bosonic string theory on anti-de Sitter space of vanishing radius. Different ways of writing the field theory Hamiltonian translate to different ways of reparametrizing the world-sheet σ coordinate. Adding a mass term in the field theory corresponds to cutting off… (More)
