Sep 01, · The book totally avoided explaining the concept of superstring theory, but instead it gave a lot of information that lead up to it. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dr. Kaku's new book because it gave lots of information about different theories that lead to superstring theory, such as: special relativity, general relativity, Maxwells Cited by:

The book then moves on to cover superstring theory. From this point on bosonic and superstrings are considered in parallel where appropriate. It starts off adding fermions onto the worldsheet. This theory is quantized in an approach that parallels that of the bosonic Cited by: Superstring theory is an attempt to explain all of the particles and fundamental forces of nature in one theory by modeling them as vibrations of tiny supersymmetric strings.

'Superstring theory' is a shorthand for supersymmetric string theory because unlike bosonic string theory, it is the version of string theory that accounts for both fermions and bosons and incorporates supersymmetry to. The first book you’ve chosen is Superstring Theory, Vols 1 and 2.

This is pretty technical, isn’t it. As a practitioner of the subject I am drawn to the serious accounts. The two volumes by Green, Schwarz and Witten are a wonderful early account of the subject.

It was a subject that first fluoresced in the mids. of Amsterdam. We have also drawn on some ideas from the books String Theory and M-Theory (Becker, Becker and Schwarz), Introduction to String Theory (Polchinski), String Theory in a Nutshell (McMahon) and Superstring Theory (Green, Schwarz and Witten), along with the lecture notes of David Tong, sometimes word-for-word.

Volume I of "Superstring theory" presented the fundamentals of string theory. This book builds on those fundamentals and explores the possible observable consequences of string theory.

Superstring theory is considered the leading candidate for the ultimate unified theory of the forces and matters in nature, and Ooguri's Japanese-language book offers the general reader a "clear explanation of the essence of the theory," notes Nobel Laureate Makoto Kobayashi, who.

In recent years, superstring theory has emerged as a promising approach to reconciling general relativity with quantum mechanics and unifying the fundamental interactions. Problems that have seemed insuperable in previous approaches take Superstring theory book a totally new character in the context of superstring theory, and some of them have been overcome.5/5(3).

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. Jul 11, · String theory turns the page on the standard description of the universe by replacing all matter and force particles with just one element: Tiny vibrating strings that twist and turn in.

With the development of supersymmetry inwhich allows for bosons and fermions to coexist, string theorists were able to develop supersymmetric string theory, or, for short, superstring theory, which took care of the major problems that destroyed bosonic string theory.

This work opened up whole new possibilities for string theory. CERN-TH/ hep-th/ INTRODUCTION TO SUPERSTRING THEORY Elias Kiritsis Theory Division, CERN, CH, Geneva 23, SWITZERLAND Abstract In these lecture notes, an introduction to superstring theory is presented. This book addresses advanced topics in superstring theory.

The authors discuss one-loop diagrams in the bosonic string theory and in superstring theory. Functional methods in the light-cone gauge are presented. Models of low energy supersymmetry are described.

Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond, begins with an introduction to supersymmetric string theories and goes on to a broad presentation of the important advances of recent years. The book first introduces the type I, type II, and heterotic superstring theories and their interactions.

String theory has the potential to show that all the wondrous happenings in the universe – from subatomic quarks to orbiting binary stars; from the big bang fireball to the majestic swirl of heavenly galaxies - are reflections of one master equation.

Mar 07, · As a "unified" theory, string theory attempts to explain all four forces observed in nature. And indeed, one of the solutions of the string equations is a force that looks like gravity. It is a testimony to the power and the beauty of string theory that physicists would rather give up the very notion of space and time-- and admit a dimension world--than question the path on which the quest.
