Abstract

Using an orbifold-like construction the twisted sector of a closed string moving on G X G (with G simply laced) is determined. A level-two Ĝ current operating there is constructed explicitly. The decomposition of the twisted sector into products between appropriate conformal and level-two Ĝ representations is given if 2 rank G-2 dim G/(2+g)
