Abstract

It is shown that an anomalous correction to the BRS current ΔJz=( 3 4π)∂z2cz in bosonic string theory essentially corresponds to the surface term ( 3 8π)sh{phonetic}∂α(cα√gR)d2x in the anomalous jacobain factor. To make this correspondense explicit in the operator level, we present a quantization of a free string at D<26 which maintains the closure of the BRS symmetry.
