Abstract

Abstract We apply the OSp(1, 1|2) algebra with world-sheet metric to gauge-covariant string field theory. We show freedom from anomalies, and construct the free gauge-invariant action for open and closed strings as δ functions in OSp(1, 1|2) and IOSp(1, 1|2) algebras, respectively. These actions contain loarger sets of auxiliary fields than the previous nonminimal forms.
