Sectors in String theory and the N-S N-S sector

  1. Jan 30, 2008 #1
    Hey folks,

    Can somone explain what is meant by a 'sector' in string theory, or provide links/refs. I've tried a search on google and xxx.lanl.gov but nothing very useful turns up.

    Also, what is the N-S N-S sector (I know it stands for Neveu Schwarz). I think its a description of fermions that are periodic / anti periodic on a closed string, is this about right??

    Any help appreciated!
