Abstract

We show that the Lorentz covariant formulation of N = 2 string in a curved space reveals an explicit hyper-Kähler structure. Apart from the metric, the superconformal currents couple to a background two-form. By superconformal symmetry the latter is constrained to be holomorphic and covariantly constant and allows one to construct three complex structures obeying a (pseudo)quaternion algebra.
