Loop Variables and Gauge Invariance in (Open) Bosonic String TheoryJan 28 2002We give a simplified and more complete description of the loop variable approach for writing down gauge invariant equations of motion for the fields of the open string. A simple proof of gauge invariance to all orders is given. In terms of loop variables, ... More

Loop Variables and Gauge Invariant Interactions in String TheoryApr 15 1997We describe a method of writing down the exact interacting gauge invariant equations for all the modes of the bosonic open string. It is a generalization of the loop variable approach that was used earlier for the free, and lowest order interacting cases. ... More

Loop Variables and Gauge Invariant Interactions of Massive Modes in String TheoryDec 31 1995The loop variable approach used earlier to obtain free equations of motion for the massive modes of the open string, is generalized to include interaction terms. These terms, which are polynomial, involve only modes of strictly lower mass. Considerations ... More

Proper Time Formalism, Gauge Invariance and the Effects of a Finite World Sheet Cutoff in String TheorySep 04 1994May 14 1995We discuss the issue of going off-shell in the proper time formalism. This is done by keeping a finite world sheet cutoff. We construct one example of an off-shell covariant Klein Gordon type interaction. For a suitable choice of the gauge transformation ... More
