Michio Kaku's Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory (Graduate Texts in PDF

By Michio Kaku

referred to as by means of a few "the thought of everything," superstrings may perhaps remedy an issue which has eluded physicists for the previous 50 years -- the ultimate unification of the 2 nice theories of the 20 th century, normal relativity and quantum box thought. it is a course-tested accomplished introductory graduate textual content on superstrings which stresses the most up-tp-date components of curiosity, no longer coated in different presentation, together with: string box conception, multi loops, Teichmueller areas, conformal box idea, and 4-dimensional strings. The booklet starts with an easy dialogue of aspect particle idea, and makes use of the Feynman course vital strategy to unify the presentation of superstrings. necessities are an aquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. This moment version has been revised and up-to-date throughout.
