  • Abstract Type (II) superstrings are described by light-cone superfields that are functionals of string superspace coordinates x i ( σ ) and ϑ a ( σ ) or the conjugate momenta p i ( σ ) and λ a ( σ ). The interaction hamiltonian and supersymmetry charges are determined to first order in the coupling constant by requiring invariance under the super-Poincare algebra, some of whose generators are implemented locally in σ. In a suitable low-energy limit the formalism goes smoothly into that of… CONTINUE READING
