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. No physical theory that will become testable in the foreseeable future predicts a multiverse. Period. But if we want to get into untestable physical theories, then there is indeed a chance. And this is where string theory comes in. Mathematical consistency of string theory requires a universe that has nine dimensions of space and one of time.

String theory research progress. Ed. by Ferenc N. Balogh.

Two interesting string theory classes of BPS black holes, distinguished by supersymmetry algebra and holographic interpretation the boundary theory is just the SCFT d 1 on Sd 2 R the boundary theory on Md 2 R is also topologically twisted characterized by non-zero magnetic uxes for graviphoton/ R-symmetry: R ˆM F 22ˇZ Most manifest in AdS 4.

The notion of string theory was already present, even in the late s, but only inwith the work of Green and Schwarz, did people realise string theory could really be consistent with quantum mechanics, as well as including gravity, and could provide theories that looked very much like the standard model of particles.

Ongoing Progress in String Theory Posted on J by stringtheoryfan In recent years string theory has been getting a lot of uninformed criticism about its supposed lack of progress towards the ultimate goal of a predictive theory.

Recent developments in supersymmetric field theory, string theory, and brane theory have been revolutionary. The main focus of the present volume is developments of M-theory and its applications to superstring theory, quantum gravity, and the theory of elementary particles.

Topics included are D-branes, boundary states, and world volume : $ String Theory: David Foster Wallace on Tennis was the second book I read today (the first was Dark Matter by Blake Crouch more on that in another post) and it was delightful.

DFW was a tennis player and a pretty good one, especially as a junior player/5. Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, this comprehensive volume covers recent advances in string theory and field theory dualities. It is based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute () a traditional event that brings together graduate students in high energy physics for an intensive course.

The duality cascade, and its dual description as string theory on the warped deformed conifold, brings together several sophisticated topics, some of which are not widely known. These lectures, which contain a number of previously unpublished results, and are intended for experts as well as students, seek to explain the physics of duality cascades.

String theory is a work in progress, so trying to pin down exactly what the science is, or what its fundamental elements are, can be kind of tricky. The key string theory features include: All objects in our universe are composed of vibrating filaments (strings) and membranes (branes) of energy.

This short book is an introduction to some recent developments in string theory and M theory. The author tries to concentrate on the main physical aspects, and often leaves more technical details to the original literature.

Here's what that. Introduction to String Theory 3 tures on string theory were supposed to give a pedagogical introduction and to prepare for later lectures on branes worlds, large extra dimensions, the AdS-CFT correspondence and black holes.

These lecture notes mostly follow the lectures, but aim to extend them in two ways. The ﬁrst is to add more details to the.String theory is a theoretical framework that attempts to address these questions and many others.

The starting point for string theory is the idea that the point-like particles of particle physics can also be modeled as one-dimensional objects called strings.

String theory describes how strings propagate through space and interact with each other.Genre/Form: Electronic books: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Progress in string theory research.
