Lastly, we’ve got the Lectures on String Theory by D Lust and S Theisen. This is the book by Dieter Lust and Stefan Theisen, which I included partly for sentimental reasons because it is, in fact, the book from which I learned string theory.

But it’s also a great :// “String theory is an attempt at a deeper description of nature by thinking of an elementary particle not as a little point but as a little loop of vibrating string.” ― Edward Witten 9 likes The first four chapters introduce the central ideas of string theory, the tools of conformal field theory, the Polyakov path integral, and the covariant quantization of the string.

The book then treats string interactions: the general formalism, and detailed treatments of the tree level and one loop :// This book guides the reader from the basics of string theory to recent developments.

It introduces the basics of perturbative string theory, world-sheet supersymmetry, space-time supersymmetry, conformal field theory and the heterotic string, before describing modern developments, including D-branes, string dualities and :// The book is consistent with the objective set out, well written for graduate students and probably one of the best textbooks on the market about string theory and shall remain so for a long time.

String theory has been called the “theory of everything.” It seeks to describe all the fundamental forces of nature. It encompasses gravity and quantum mechanics in one unifying :// The BBS-book somehow I don't really like that much; too often I get the feeling that without a background in String Theory the book is hard to follow.

I expected more from that book. But maybe I should give it another try. I guess the real successor of GSW still has to come.

The only Book I could find was "A Mathematical Introduction to String Theory" by Albeverio, Jost, Paycha and Scarlatti. I only stumbled upon this because I really like Jost's other Books.

After reading it, I found myself craving more. However, the above book is extreemly short and doesn't cover alot sadly. I've been having trouble reading the String Theory, first published incomprises two volumes which provide a comprehensive and pedagogic account of the subject.

Volume 2 begins with an introduction to supersymmetric string theories and presents the important advances of recent :// In his controversial book "The Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next", theoretical physicist Lee Smolin points out "five great problems in theoretical physics." 2 days ago String theory, often called the “theory of everything,” is a relatively young science that includes such unusual concepts as superstrings, branes, and extra dimensions.

Scientists are hopeful that string theory will unlock one of the biggest mysteries of the universe, namely how gravity and quantum physics fit :// The two volumes that comprise String Theory provide an up-to-date, comprehensive account of string theory. Volume 1 provides a thorough introduction to the bosonic string, based on the Polyakov path integral and conformal field theory.

“Introduction to Quantum Field Theory” were the most diﬃcult and advanced text-books available, and I always feared what a quantum ﬁeld theory book which was not introductory would look like. There is now a standard reference on relativistic string theory by Green, Schwarz, and Witten, Superstring Theory [], which ~siegel/ String Theory.

In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. In string theory, the different types of observed elementary particles arise from the different quantum states of these String theory describes 10 separate universes, with different constants of nature and even different laws of physics.

Many physicists think this is a weakness of the theory, but Leonard INTRODUCTION TO STRING THEORY⁄ version Gerard ’t Hooft Institute for Theoretical Physics Utrecht University, Leuvenlaan 4 CC Utrecht, the ~hooft/lectures/ The book is explicitly motivated by the desire to answer a lot of the criticism of string theory that has become rather widespread in recent years (wasn’t always so).

During the last 50 years, numerous physicists have tried to unravel the secrets of string ://About this Book String theory corresponds to a theoretical (As the name implies) framework introduced in physics.

This framework share similarities with particle physics, as it presents point like particles (from particle physics) as one-dimensional objects, these objects are said to be string.

They are stored in the framework described String theory is currently the best candidate for a unified theory of all forces and all forms of matter in nature. As such, it has become a focal point for physical and philosophical discussions. This unique book explores the history of the theory's early stages of development, as told by its main protagonists.

The book journeys from the first version of the theory (the so-called dual
