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… 

Supersymmetric field theory in two-time physics

We construct N=1 supersymmetry in 4+2 dimensions compatible with the theoretical framework of 2T physics field theory and its gauge symmetries. The fields are arranged into 4+2-dimensional chiral and

N=2, 4 supersymmetric gauge field theory in two-time physics

In the context of two-time physics in 4+2 dimensions we construct the most general N=2, 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills gauge theories for any gauge group G. This builds on our previous work for N=1

Twistors and 2t-physics 1

Two-Time physics applies broadly to the formulation of physics and correctly describes the physical world as we know it. Recently it was applied to a 2T re-formulation of the d = 4 twistor

Twistors and 2T-physics

Two‐Time physics applies broadly to the formulation of physics and correctly describes the physical world as we know it. Recently it was applied to a 2T re‐formulation of the d = 4 twistor


We propose a scenario of gauge–string correspondence by relating the SU(3) color group to hidden space–time isometries originating from extra dimensions. These isometries (α-symmetries) are the

Dual field theories in (d-1)+1 emergent spacetimes from A unifying field theory in d+2 spacetime

According to two-time physics, there is more to space and time than can be garnered with the ordinary formulation of physics. Two-time physics has shown that the standard model of particles and

The Standard Model as a 2T-Physics Theory

New developments in 2T‐physics, that connect 2T‐physics field theory directly to the real world, are reported in this talk. An action is proposed in field theory in 4+2 dimensions which correctly

Generalized twistor transform and dualities with a new description of particles with spin beyond free and massless

A generalized twistor transform for spinning particles in 3+1 dimensions is constructed that beautifully unifies many types of spinning systems by mapping them to the same twistor Z{sub A}=({mu}{sup


Recently we considered supertwistor reformulation of the D = 4, N = 1, 2 superstring action that comprises Newman–Penrose dyad components and is classically equivalent to the Green–Schwarz one. It

Twistor transform in d dimensions and a unifying role for twistors

Twistors in four dimensions d=4 have provided a convenient description of massless particles with any spin, and this led to remarkable computational techniques in Yang-Mills field theory. Recently it
