The metric, together with a constant dilaton and appropriate antisymmetric field, is an exact solution of bosonic string theory.
This will be investigated in future work in the context of five-dimensional bosonic string theory.

Another important group related to the unique tadpole-free bosonic string theory is the SO([2.sup.13]) = SO(8192) group related to the bosonic string compactified on the [E.sub.8] x SO(16) lattice.
There has been some work done recently along this line of investigation in the framework of the canonical quantization in time-dependent gauges that attempted to interpret the [sigma]-models as tree level bosonic string theories (The de Sitter space-time is not a proper string background as it is not a solution of the string [beta]-function equations.).

In fact, this could be a sign for bosonic strings in any dimension and is not related to 26 or 10 dimensions.
