Matrix string theory, contact terms, and superstring field theory

  1. Sep 28, 2003 #1
    A recent paper details some new insights for the second quantized
    string field theory.

    This has some implications for future models, it appears to be quite sound, but this is based on a confined early viewpoint of a first once over reading, no doubt there will be more questions to follow.

    Very nice paper. I wonder if we could get some "Baez type" explanations of some of the matrix theory statements in the paper. They don't seem impossibly deep, but I for one could use some context with them. For starters, how about the "irrelevant fields" Oni and the scaling argument surrounding them.

    The expression learn to crawl before attempting to sprint comes to mind.
