Homework Help: Zwiebach light-cone gauge conditions

  1. Oct 21, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    So, there are apparently four light-cone gauge conditions that Zwiebach implements: 9.62, 10.78, 10.98, and 11.6.

    Are these lc gauge conditions all independent and separate, or is there some central equation that connects all of them? All of these conditions are not derivable, but are simply "aritificial" constraints on the parameters of the worldsheet that are used to get the equations of motion to work out nicely, right?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
