Non-commutative superstring worldsheet

In this paper we consider the worldsheet of the superstring as a non-commutative space. Some additional terms can be added to the superstring action, such that for an ordinary worldsheet they are zero. The expansion of this extended action up to the first order of the non-commutativity parameter leads to the new supersymmetric action for the string. For the closed superstring, we obtain the boundary state that describes a brane. From the open string point of view, the new boundary conditions on the worldsheet bosons generalize the non-commutativity of spacetime. Finally, we suggest some definitions for the non-commutativity parameter of the superstring worldsheet.
