Superghost Fields in N = 2 Superconformal Algebra

  • Soonkeon Nam
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 245)


The representation of the N = 2 superconformai algebra in terms of BRST super-ghosts is considered. We attempt to apply the Miura transform — or the Feigin-Fuchs contruction — to the ghost field representation of the N = 2 superconformai algebra. We find that although it is possible to have such a construction, it is equivalent to the unshifted representation.
