Abstract

The extent to which the “intertwining” operator, which converts the untwisted or straight bosonic string to a twisted string and vice versa, also enhances the algebra constructed in the two sectors separately is explored. The relationship between the E 8 + E 8 and the so(32) algebras is discussed in...

Abstract: The extent to which the “intertwining” operator, which converts the untwisted or straight bosonic string to a twisted string and vice versa, also enhances the algebra constructed in the two sectors separately is explored. The relationship between the E 8 + E 8 and the so(32) algebras is discussed in the context of the reflection twist, as is the special role of E 8 . The possibility of the other twists (particularly of third order) playing a fundamental role in string theory is briefly
