Covariant Superstrings on AdS5 × S5

Alberto Iglesias (SUNY Stony Brook)


We review the approach to covariant quantization of superstrings without pure spinors for the flat background case and present its underlying nondegenerate supertranslation group structure. We then extend the nondegenerate superalgebra to the case of AdS5 × S5 background and construct a superstring action.
