Called by some "the theory of everything," superstrings may solve a problem which has eluded physicists for the past 50 years  the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory.

More DescriptionCalled by some "the theory of everything," superstrings may solve a problem which has eluded physicists for the past 50 years  the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory. This is a coursetested comprehensive introductory graduate text on superstrings which stresses the most current areas of interest, not covered in other presentation, including: string field theory, multi loops, Teichmueller spaces, conformal field theory, and fourdimensional strings. The book begins with a simple discussion of point particle theory, and uses the Feynman path integral technique to unify the presentation of superstrings. Prerequisites are an aquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. This second edition has been revised and updated throughout.
