close string, close stringer, closed stringer, curb string, housed string

A staircase string whose upper edge is straight and parallel to its lower edge; the tread and riser ends are housed in the face of the string and are concealed.

Such structures, referred to as [L.sub.[infinity]] or strongly homotopy Lie algebras, first appeared in the physics literature in closed string field theory [1] and in the mathematics literature in topology [2-4].
Indeed, it is to be expected that the gauge structure of exceptional field theory requires [L.sub.[infinity]] algebras with arbitrarily high brackets [30], as is also the case in closed string field theory [1].

Then, the amplitude for a closed string propagating between D- and gD-branes is given by <B(gD)[absolute value of [DELTA]]B(D)> = -<B(D)[absolute value of [DELTA]]B(D)>, where [DELTA] is an inverse of the closed string propagator.
The second is the gauge invariant overlap for closed string [24, 25].
where V is a closed string vertex operator and <I| is the identity string field.

* Closed string oscillations are sometimes called left movers and right movers.
The simplest vibration of a closed string produces a graviton, the quantized particle of gravity.
Therefore, closed string theories are expected to remain commutative as long as the background is geometric.

Kong and Zhang studied the motion of relativistic closed strings in the Minkowski space [R.sup.1+n] in [14]; particularly, the authors obtained a general solution formula for this system of nonlinear equations.
