Abstract

The formalism of pure spinors of the superstring will be used to study S-duality nonperturbatively and matching AdS-CFT in superstring theory. These studies will involve the calculation of scattering amplitudes, the construction of field theory of the superstring, and the superstring in backgrounds Ramond-Ramond. The project will also assist in the training of graduate students and postdoctoral students. (AU)
