Abstract

We outline a first quantization of closed bosonic strings which employs the Feynman sum over histories and describes the world-sheets through implicit functions. This method has a number of features: it has a local GL (24, R ) invariance. World-sheets do not explicitly appear. The method is applicable to multi-dimensional membranes, and it leads naturally to second quantization.
