D=10 Superstring Theory

  • Edward Witten
Part of the Progress in Physics book series (PMP, volume 9)


The supersymmetric string of Schwarz and Green [1] is a variant of the old fermionic string theory of Ramond-Neveu-Schwarz [2]. It is consistent only in ten dimensions and apparently must be interpreted in the sense of a Kaluza-Klein theory, the ten dimensions consisting of four Minkowskian ones and six compact ones.
