Emergence of Superstring from Pure Spinor

Ichiro Oda

(Submitted on 17 Jun 2011)

Starting with a classical action where a pure spinor $\lambda^\alpha$ is only a fundamental and dynamical variable, the pure spinor formalism for superparticle and superstring is derived by following the BRST formalism. In this formalism, not only the string variable $x^m$ but also the space-time spinor $\theta^\alpha$ are emerged as the Faddeev-Popov (FP) ghosts of a topological symmetry and its reducible symmetry. This study suggests that the fundamental theory behind the pure spinor formalism of the superstring might be a topological field theory.

*****************************

I thought that the title of this paper was totally ambitious, so, I am posting it here for comments. Mitchel Porter and others, what can you say about this paper? Is it really amazing as the title implies?
