On the long plane flight to Italy I had the chance to read the recently published A Brief History of String Theory: From Dual Models to M-theory by philosopher of science Dean Rickles. The book deals with the history of string theory, beginning with its origins in the Veneziano model of strong interactions, and ending in the mids with M-theory and the “Second Superstring Revolution”. The point of doing fundamental particle physics is – like great art – not specifically to improve our material wellbeing, but to enrich our understanding and appreciation of our place in the.

String theory is one of the most active branches of theoretical physics and has the potential to provide a unified description of all known particles and interactions. This book is a systematic introduction to the subject, focused on the detailed description of how string Cited by: This book attempts to explain why 'string theory' may provide the comprehensive underlying theory that describes and explains our world. It is an enthusiastic view of how compactified string/M-theories (plus data that may be reachable) seem to have the possibilities of leading to a comprehensive underlying theory of particle physics and cosmology, perhaps soon.

Ibanez. The Little Book of String Theory offers a short, accessible, and entertaining introduction to one of the most talked-about areas of physics today. String theory has been called the "theory of everything." It seeks to describe all the fundamental forces of nature.

Introduction/Overview Motivation for String Theory Presently we understand that physics can be described by four forces: gravity, elec-tromagnetism, the weak force, responsible for beta decays and the strong force which.

If you are a theoretical particle physicist, a string theorist, or a phenomenologist — particularly if you suffer from cognitive dissonance — you will not like this book. If you are a true. String theory (matrix): Good introductory text for matrix string theory Supersymmetry (with exercises): Problems book recommendation on supersymmetry, supergravity and superstring theory Kahler manifolds: Kähler and complex manifolds.

String theory, in particle physics, a theory that attempts to merge quantum mechanics with Albert Einstein’s general theory of name string theory comes from the modeling of subatomic particles as tiny one-dimensional “stringlike” entities rather than the more conventional approach in which they are modeled as zero-dimensional point particles.

About this Book. String theory corresponds to a theoretical (As the name implies) framework introduced in physics. This framework share similarities with particle physics, as it presents point like particles (from particle physics) as one-dimensional objects, these objects are said to be string.

Furthermore, many developments in string theory have had spinoffs which gave more direct insight into particle physics, for example the understanding of strong coupling physics in certain ("supersymmetric") models of quarks and gluons.

Although string theory is not directly testable experimentally, there are many indirect tests that can be. String theory is one of the most active branches of theoretical physics and has the potential to provide a unified description of all known particles and interactions.

This book is a systematic introduction to the subject, focused on the detailed description of how string theory is connected to the real world of particle physics.2/5(3). String Theory and Particle Physics: An Introduction to String Phenomenology touches on the first aspect but focuses on the second, “model-building” side.

The latter requires a thorough understanding of the full machinery of string theory, and authors Luis Ibáñez and Angel Uranga have done an excellent job of presenting that machinery in a clear and readable : Senarath P.

de Alwis. Great suggestions for laymen interested in these topics. I'd add The Road to Reality (Penrose), Quantum Theory (Bohm), The Shape of Inner Space (Yau), and String Theory and M-Theory (Becker) as more detailed overviews that include the math.

String theory represents a major dream of theoretical physicists — a description of all forces and matter in one mathematical picture. But after countless papers, conferences and dry-erase. Further References: “String Theory and M-Theory” by Becker, Becker and Schwarz and “String Theory in a Nutshell” by Kiritsis both deal with the bosonic string fairly quickly, but include many more advanced topics.

But obviously it is very interesting and fun. If you are still in school then you should do some reading of pop science books, of.

Introduction to String Theory (PDF 79p) This book covers the following topics: Strings in QCD, The classical string, Open and closed strings, Quantization, Lorentz invariance, Interactions and vertex operators, BRST quantization, The Polyakov path integral, T-Duality, Complex coordinates, Fermions in strings, The GSO Projection, Zero modes.

Ibáñez, Angel M. At the heart of string theory is the thread of an idea that's run through physics for centuries, that at some fundamental level, all the different forces, particles, interactions and. The author, a leading string theorist-discoverer of D-branes()- assumes the reader is fluent in theoretical particle physics, Feynman path integration, and gauge field theory.

He frequently pulls examples from these fields to motivate his development which is pedagogically satisfying if you're fluent/5(19).

During the last 50 years, numerous physicists have tried to unravel the secrets of string. In this book, you'll get a crash course in physics as an evolving subject, from the theory of gravity, to special relativity, to general relativity, to quantum mechanics, to string At the same time, I've been lucky enough in high school and university to have instructors who are willing to let me "give science a try" in a not threatening way/5.String Theory and the Real World: From Particle Physics to Astrophysics.
