The hybrid formalism is used to quantize the superstring compactified to twodimensional target-space in a manifestly spacetime supersymmetric manner. A quantizable sigma model action is then constructed for the Type II superstring in curved twodimensional supergravity backgrounds which can include Ramond-Ramond flux. Such curved backgrounds include Calabi-Yau four-fold compactifications with Ramond-Ramond flux, and new extremal black hole solutions in two-dimensional dilaton supergravity theory… CONTINUE READING
