A unique twistor-like Lorentz harmonic formulation for all N=1 supersymmetric extended objects (super-p-branes) moving in spacetime of arbitrary dimension D (admissible for given p) is suggested. The equations of motion are derived, the explicit form of the -symmetry transformations is presented and the classical equivalence to the standard formulation is proved. The cases with minimal worldsheet dimensions p=1,2, namely the D=10 heterotic string and the D=11 supermembrane, are considered in… 

Lorentz harmonics and superfield action. D = 10, N = 1 superstring

We propose a new version of the superfield action for a closed D = 10,N = 1 superstring where the Lorentz harmonics are used as auxiliary superfields. The incorporation of Lorentz harmonics allows

Generalized action principle and extrinsic geometry for 1 superparticles

We propose a generalized action for N = 1 superparticles in D = 3,4,6 and 10 spacetime dimensions in terms of the extrinsic geometry of the worldline superspace. The superfield equations of motion

Twistor-like superparticles revisited

We consider a formulation of N=1, D=3, 4 and 6 superparticle mechanics, which is manifestly supersymmetric on the worldline and in the target superspace. For the construction of the action we use

Twistorial superparticle with tensorial central charges

A twistorial formulation of the N=1 D=4 superparticle with tensorial central charges describing massive and massless cases in uniform manner is given. The twistors resolve energy-momentum vector

The construction of brane and superbrane actions using nonlinear realizations

We derive new actions for the bosonic p-brane, super p-brane and the p-brane moving in flat and AdS (dS) space times using the theory of nonlinear realization without requiring the adoption of any



Twistor-like formulation of the supermembrane in D = 1

Null SuperP-Branes Quantum Theory in 4-Dimensional Space-Time

A twistor-like harmonic formulation of the theory of extended supersymmetrical null objects is suggested. A new harmonic form of the action for null super string and null supermembrane with

Double Supersymmetric Particle Theories

In the review a formulation of massless relativistic (super) particle theories relying on the use of commuting twistor-type variables is considered. This formulation makes a bridge between twistor
