Abstract: We construct a version of SFT for the cotangent bundle of a simply connected odd dimensional manifold without using holomorphic curves. There is a map from this SFT into string topology of the manifold. We show that this map induces an isomorphism on homology, and intertwines the SFT product with (a version of) the Chas-Sullivan product.
