String Theory or Field Theory?
Ln = −zn+1 d dz , i.e. form the basis of holomorphic vector fields on the world-sheet Σ, parameterized by complex co-ordinates (z , ¯z).
String Theory or Field Theory?
First, conformal invariance says that a ”physical operator” must have unit dimension, then and only then the result of integration over the boundary of the world-sheet (in case of open strings, or over the whole world-sheet in case of closed strings) will not depend on the choice of co-ordinates.
String Theory or Field Theory?
However, the variables θα (σ, τ ) behave as scalars with respect to two-dimensional reparameterizations of co-ordinates and two-dimensional supersymmetry is not a symmetry of the Green-Schwarz superstrings.
String Theory or Field Theory?
The main example of duality is symmetry in the theory of closed strings in a space-time with compact dimensions (in the simplest case – with the only co-ordinate taking values on some ”circle” φ ∼ φ + 2πRn, with n ∈ Z being any integer).
