# Twistor superstring in two-time physics

@article{Bars2004TwistorSI, title={Twistor superstring in two-time physics}, author={Itzhak Bars}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={70}, pages={104022} }

By utilizing the gauge symmetries of two-time physics (2T physics), a superstring with linearly realized global SU(2,2|4) supersymmetry in 4+2 dimensions (plus internal degrees of freedom) is constructed. It is shown that the dynamics of the Witten-Berkovits twistor superstring in 3+1 dimensions emerges as one of the many one-time (1T) holographic pictures of the 4+2 dimensional string obtained via gauge fixing of the 2T gauge symmetries. In 2T physics the twistor language can be transformed to…
