Title: Covariant canonical superstrings

Abstract

A covariant canonical formulation of generic superstrings is presented. The (super)geometry emerges dynamically and supergravity transformations are identified with particular canonical transformations. By construction these transformations are off-shell closed, and the necessary auxiliary fields can be identified with canonical momenta.
