Character of pure spinors
"... The character of holomorphic functions on the space of pure spinors in ten, eleven and twelve dimensions is calculated. From this character formula, we derive in a manifestly covariant way various central charges which appear in the pure spinor formalism for the superstring. We also derive in a simp ..."

"... The pure spinor formalism for the superstring, initiated by N. Berkovits, is derived at the fully quantum level starting from a fundamental reparametrization invariant and superPoincaré invariant worldsheet action. It is a simple extension of the GreenSchwarz action with doubled spinor degrees of ..."

Pure Spinors on Lie groups
, 2007
"... For any manifold M, the direct sum TM = TM ⊕T ∗ M carries a natural inner product given by the pairing of vectors and covectors. Differential forms on M may be viewed as spinors for the corresponding Clifford bundle, and in particular there is a notion of pure spinor. In this paper, we study pure ..."

Partition Functions of Pure Spinors
, 2005
"... We compute partition functions describing multiplicities and charges of massless and first massive string states of purespinor superstrings in 3, 4, 6, 10 dimensions. At the massless level we find a spinone gauge multiplet of minimal supersymmetry in d dimensions. At the first massive string level ..."

Compactification of the Heterotic Pure Spinor
, 907
"... In this paper we begin the study of compactifications of the pure spinor formalism for superstrings. As a first example of such a process we study the case of the heterotic string in a CalabiYau background. We explicitly construct a BRST operator imposing N = 1 fourdimensional supersymmetry and sh ..."

NonCritical Pure Spinor Superstrings
, 2006
"... We construct noncritical pure spinor superstrings in two, four and six dimensions. We find explicitly the map between the RNS variables and the pure spinor ones in the linear dilaton background. The RNS variables map onto a patch of the pure spinor space and the holomorphic top form on the pure spi ..."

(Non)triviality of Pure Spinors and Exact Pure Spinor RNS Map
, 2008
"... All the BRSTinvariant operators in pure spinor formalism in d = 10 can be represented as BRST commutators, such as V = {Qbrst, θ+ λ+ V} where λ+ is the U(5) component of the pure spinor transforming as 1 5. Therefore, in order to secure nontriviality of BRST 2 cohomology in pure spinor string theo ..."
