Integrable supersymmetric fluid mechanics from superstrings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Following the construction of a model for the planar supersymmetric Chaplygin gas, supersymmetric fluid mechanics in (1 + 1) dimensions is obtained from the light-cone parametrized Nambu-Goto superstring in (2 + 1) dimensions. The lineal model is completely integrable and can be formulated neatly using Riemann coordinates. Infinite towers of conserved charges and supercharges are exhibited. They form irreducible representations of a dynamical (hidden) SO(2, 1) symmetry group.
