In the conjectured correspondence between supergravity and geodesic models on infinite-dimensional hyperbolic coset spaces, and E 10/K(E 10) in particular, the constraints play a central role. We present a Sugawara-type construction in terms of the E 10 Noether charges that extends these constraints infinitely into the hyperbolic algebra, in contrast to the truncated expressions obtained in Damour et al. (Class. Quant. Grav. 24:6097, 2007) that involved only finitely many generators. Our extended constraints are associated to an infinite set of roots which are all imaginary, and in fact fill the closed past light-cone of the Lorentzian root lattice. The construction makes crucial use of the E 10 Weyl group and of the fact that the E 10 model contains both D = 11 supergravity and D = 10 IIB supergravity. Our extended constraints appear to unite in a remarkable manner the different canonical constraints of these two theories. This construction may also shed new light on the issue of ‘open constraint algebras’ in traditional canonical approaches to gravity.
