Lax operator
The algebra was essentially guessed. But it turns out that it has a natural interpretation in the string worldsheet theory.

Lax pair

For the pure spinor superstring in the Lax pair was constructed by B.C.Vallilo:



where are generators of :


and are currents:


and is a complex number which is called spectral parameter.

It follows from the equations of motion that . This observation can be taken as a starting point of the classical integrability theory.

We will now discuss generalizations of this construction.
