Infrared behavior of Closed Superstrings in Strong Magnetic and Gravitational Fields

  title={Infrared behavior of Closed Superstrings in Strong Magnetic and Gravitational Fields},
  author={Elias Kiritsis and Costas Kounnas},
A large class of four-dimensional supersymmetric ground states of closed superstrings with a non-zero mass gap are constructed. For such ground states we turn on chromo-magnetic fields as well as curvature. The exact spectrum as function of the chromo-magnetic fields and curvature is derived. We examine the behavior of the spectrum, and find that there is a maximal value for the magnetic field Hmax ∼ M planck. At this value all states that couple to the magnetic field become infinitely massive… CONTINUE READING
