Book Description:

Building on the foundations laid in his Introduction to Superstrings and M Theory, Professor Kaku discusses such topics as the classification of conformal string theories, knot theory, the YangBaxter relation, quantum groups, and the insights into 11dimensional strings recently obtained from Mtheory. New chapters discuss such topics as SeibergWitten theory, M theory and duality, and Dbranes. Throughout, the author conveys the vitality of the current research and places readers at...
More DescriptionBuilding on the foundations laid in his Introduction to Superstrings and M Theory, Professor Kaku discusses such topics as the classification of conformal string theories, knot theory, the YangBaxter relation, quantum groups, and the insights into 11dimensional strings recently obtained from Mtheory. New chapters discuss such topics as SeibergWitten theory, M theory and duality, and Dbranes. Throughout, the author conveys the vitality of the current research and places readers at its forefront. Several chapters reviewing the fundamentals of string theory, making the presentation of the material selfcontained while keeping overlap with the earlier book to a minimum.
