Title: Off-Shell Structure of the String Sigma Model

Abstract

The off-shell structure of the string sigma model is investigated. In the open bosonic string, nonperturbative effects appear to depend crucially on the regularization scheme. A scheme retaining the notion of string width reproduces the structure of Witten's string field theory. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
