In this paper we study the spectrum of bosonic string theory on AdS3 . We study classical solutions of the SL(2, R) WZW model, including solutions for long strings with nonzero winding number. We show that the model has a symmetry relating string configurations with different winding numbers. We then study the Hilbert space of the WZW model, including all states related by the above symmetry. This leads to a precise description of long strings. We prove a no-ghost theorem for all the… CONTINUE READING
