LightCone Gauge for N=2 Strings
Abstract
Covariant quantization of selfdual strings in 2+2 flat dimensions reduces them to their zero modes, a consequence of extended worldsheet supersymmetry. We demonstrate how to arrive at the same result more directly by employing a `double' lightcone gauge. An unconventional feature of this gauge is the removal of anticommuting degrees of freedom by commuting symmetries and vice versa. The reducibility of the N=4 string and its equivalence with the N=2 string become apparent.
