A bosonic string model with G×G gauge excitations can be understood as the dimensional reduction of a simpler string model in higher spacetime dimensions. It follows that the corresponding effective low-energy theories of these two models are similarly related. A close relationship of these bosonic strings to the heterotic string model is also noted.
