Green-Schwarz superstring in extended configuration space and the infinitely reducible first class constraints problem

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Green-Schwarz superstring action is modified to include some set of additional (on-shell trivial) variables. A complete constraint system of the theory turns out to be reducible both in the original and in additional variable sectors. The initial 85 first class constraints and 8c second class ones are shown to be unified with 8c first class and 85 second class constraints from the additional variables sector, resulting in SO(1,9)covariant and linearly independent constraint sets. Residual reducibility proves to fall on second class con-straints only.
