    added a tiny comment on §\kappa§-symmetry to Green-Schwarz action functional, plus some references. This whole entry deserves to be considerably expanded, but I doubt that I will look into this any time soon.

    I have started a Definition-section at Green-Schwarz action functional, amplifying that it precisely a WZW coset model for a given super target.

    Thanks for John Huerta for pointing out references!

    added a tad to Green-Schwarz action functional (bit more definition, more commented references). But not done yet.

    added some basic remarks on Supercoordinates etc.

    I have been adding lots of little things during the day to Green-Schwarz action functional and related entries.

    If you see me active in “Recently revised” and are wondering what’s going on: either ask me specifically if something bugs you, or else please wait a bit: things are converging and in a little while I’ll post a comprehensive story…

    The entry Green-Schwarz action functional used to be a collection of advanced facts and references without any discussion of the basics. I have now started to write an Idea section that, hopefully, serves to introduce the subject a little.

    added pointer to

    Hatsuda-Sakaguchi 02, around (1.2) and (2.6), Hatsuda-Sakaguchi 01, around (1.2)

    for a more explicit version of the statement that looks like claiming that the super-AdS version of the GS-string cocycle (WZW term) is trivial in CE-cohomology.

    (I had been alerted of this only from arxiv:1808.04470, p. 5 and equation (5.5))

    still need to look into this. If this really says the CE-class of that AdS cocycle is trivial, that would be rather strange. Not sure what to make of it yet
