On decoupling of massless modes in NCOS theories

S. Hyun, S. Lee, H. Shin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We revisit the decoupling phenomenon of massless modes in non-commutative open string (NCOS) theories. We check the decoupling by explicit computation in (2 + 1) or higher dimensional NCOS theories and recapitulate the validity of the decoupling to all orders in perturbation theory.
