  • The thesis divides into three parts. The first is devoted to a careful study of very convenient superspace conventions which are a basic tool for the second part. A theorem is formulated that gives a clear statement about when the signs of a superspace calculation can be omitted. The second part describes the type II superstring using Berkovits' pure spinor formalism. The derivation of the supergravity constraints from classical BRST invariance of Berkovits and Howe is carefully reviewed and… CONTINUE READING
