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.
