The geometry of pure spinor space
Journal article, 2012

We investigate the complex geometry of D=10 pure spinor space. The Kähler structure and the corresponding metric giving rise to the desired Calabi-Yau property are determined, and an explicit covariant expression for the Laplacian is given. The metric is not that of a cone obtained by embedding pure spinor space in a flat space of unconstrained spinors. Some directions for future studies, concerning regularisation and generalisation to eleven dimensions, are briefly discussed.
