## Event-Symmetry for Superstrings

**Authors:** Philip Gibbs

I apply the principle of event-symmetry to simple string models and discuss how these
lead to the conviction that multiple quantisation is linked to dimension. It may be that string
theory has to be formulated in the absence of space-time which will then emerge as a derived
property of the dynamics. Another interpretation of the event-symmetric approach which embodies
this is that instantons are fundamental. Just as solitons may be dual to fundamental particles
instantons may be dual to space-time events. Event-symmetry is then dual to instanton statistics.
In that case a unification between particle statistics and gauge symmetry follows on naturally
from the principle of event-symmetry. I build algebras which represent symmetries of superstring
theories extending event-symmetry but which are also isomorphic to an algebra of creation and
annihilation operators for strings of fermionic partons.
