Using the hybrid formalism, superstrings in four-dimensional NS-NS plane waves are studied in a manifest supersymmetric manner. This description of the superstring is obtained through a field redefinition of the RNS worldsheet fields and defined as a topological N = 4 string theory. The Hilbert space consists of two types of representations describing short and long strings. We study the physical spectrum to find boson-fermion asymmetry in the massless spectrum of the short string. Some massive…

Covariant BRST Quantization of Closed Strings in the pp-Wave Background

We canonically quantize closed string theory in the pp-wave background with a non-zero flux of the three-form field strength by using the covariant BRST operator formalism. In this canonical

Boundary states for D-branes with traveling waves

We construct boundary states for D-branes which carry traveling waves in the covariant formalism. We compute their vacuum amplitudes to investigate their interactions. In non-compact space, the



A New Description of the Superstring

This is a review of the new manifestly spacetime-supersymmetric description of the superstring. The new description contains N=2 worldsheet supersymmetry, and is related by a field redefinition to
