The Canonical Structure of the Manifestly Supersymmetric String
Theodore J. Allen
California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125
Abstract
Both the Green-Schwarz and Siegel strings are presented in canonical form. Both
systems are shown to describe the same number of physical degrees of freedom. The
apparent extra symmetries of the Siegel string are not true symmetries but are combi-
nations of second-class constraints. A formal quantization procedure is outlined and
the problems of quantization are discussed.
