Recently, by explicit calculations at orders *\alpha',\alpha'^2,\alpha'^3*, it has been observed that the effective action of string theory at the critical dimension is independent of the background for the closed spacetime manifolds. In this paper we speculate that for the open spacetime manifolds, the effective action is even independent of... Show more
