Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

The authors compute the closed spinning-string propagator in coordinate space, in the light-cone gauge, using the first-quantised operator formalism. They find that, as for the case of the bosonic string, the spinning-string propagator may be expressed in terms of elliptic functions. They comment on the covariant generalisation of this light-cone gauge result.
