Continuing from my last post where I discussed the triangular interplay between string-string duality, string field theory, and the action of Dp/M5-branes, here I shall discuss Stueckelberg string fields and derive the BRST invariance of the Landau-Stueckelberg action. Recalling that the action of M-theory in the Witten gauge is:

with the kappa symmetry term, the metric on , and the corresponding coordinates with an antisymmetric 3-tensor. Hence, the worldvolume is:

and the worldsheet action:

being the sum of three terms:

and the index I = 1, … , 22 labels 22 gauge fields: 16 coming from the internal dimensions of the heterotic string, and the other 6 gauge fields are the KK modes of the metric and antisymmetric tensor. The action has a massless spectrum given by moduli fields corresponding to deformations of the Narain lattice and thus take values in the group manifold:
