A Superstring Theory in 2+2 Dimensions
Abstract
In this paper we construct a $(2,2)$ dimensional string theory with manifest $N=1$ spacetime supersymmetry. We use Berkovits' approach of augmenting the spacetime supercoordinates by the conjugate momenta for the fermionic variables. The worldsheet symmetry algebra is a twisted and truncated ``small'' $N=4$ superconformal algebra. The physical spectrum of the open string contains an infinite number of massless states, including a supermultiplet of a selfdual YangMills field and a righthanded spinor and a supermultiplet of an antiselfdual YangMills field and a lefthanded spinor. The higherspin multiplets are natural generalisations of these selfdual and antiselfdual multiplets.
