Abstract

Dual string models have been quite successful in explaining many important features of hadron physics (l). They present, however, also some shortcomings as non-physical values of the space-time dimension and of the intercept of the Regge trajectory which imply the existence of tachyonic states. Many attempts have been made to construct more realistic models, but all of them have been unsuccessful. The existing models were in fact so tight that it seemed very difficult to modify or generalize them without losing some of their good features.
