Abstract

In recent work two different approaches for obtaining the covariant action of 2D quantum supergravity are developed. The first one is based on Hamiltonian reduction of flat OSP(2|1) connection in holomorphic polarization. Adding extra degrees of freedom with the help of gauging procedure, the action and the superconformal Ward identity are obtained. It is shown that super-Virasoro transformations preserve the form of the Lax connection and therefore are symmetries of the sKdV equations. In the second approach starting with Chern-Simons theory and using non-canonical polarization the zero-curvature condition entails the same results.
