Open String Plane-Wave Light-Cone Superstring Field Theory

Stefanski, B. (2003). Open String Plane-Wave Light-Cone Superstring Field Theory. Nuclear Physics B, 666(1-2), pp. 71-87. doi: 10.1016/S0550-3213(03)00499-1


We construct the cubic interaction vertex and dynamically generated supercharges in light-cone superstring field theory for a large class half-supersymmetric D-branes in the plane-wave background. We show that these satisfy the plane-wave superalgebra at first order in string coupling. The cubic interaction vertex and dynamical supercharges presented here are given explicitly in terms of oscilators and can be used to compute three-point functions of open strings with endpoints on half-supersymmetric D-branes.
