Details The stringor bundle plays the role of the spinor bundle, but in string theory instead of quantum mechanics. It has been anticipated in pioneering work of Stolz and Teichner as a vector bundle on loop space.
I will talk about joint work with Matthias Ludewig and Peter Kristel that provides a fully rigorous and neat presentation of the stringor bundle as an associated 2-vector bundle, via a representation of the string 2-group on a von Neumann algebra.
