  • D-Braneby Koji Hashimoto

    Springer 2012; US$ 79.95

    Superstring theory is a promising theory which can potentially unify all the forces and the matters in particle physics. A new multi-dimensional object which is called "D-brane" was found. It drastically changed our perspective of a unified world. We may live on membrane-like hypersurfaces in higher dimensions ("braneworld scenario"),... more...

  • The Little Book of String Theoryby Steven S. Gubser

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95

    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. It encompasses gravity and quantum mechanics in one unifying theory. But it is unproven... more...

  • D-Branesby Clifford V. Johnson

    Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 68.00

    Self-contained and pedagogical introduction to key string theory ideas and techniques needed to understand D-branes. more...

  • Geometry and Physics of Branesby U Bruzzo; V. Gorini; U. Moschella

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 220.00

    Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical viewpoint, branes are related to several important theories,... more...

  • A First Course in String Theoryby Barton Zwiebach

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 76.00

    Accessible introduction to string theory for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. more...

  • String Phenomenology 2003, Proceedings Of The 2nd International Conferenceby Veronica Sanz; Steve Abel; Jose Santiago

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 328.00

    This book contains a remarkable overview of the current trends in string phenomenology, through the contributions of an international team of researchers who present their latest results. Dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Ian Kogan, this volume will fill a gap in the literature on a comprehensive overview of the subject. The proceedings... more...

  • String Phenomenology, Proceedings Of The First International Conferenceby S. A. Abel; A E Faraggi; A Ibarra

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 260.00

    String phenomenology offers a bridge between the excitement and novelty that typified theoretical physics in recent years and experimental reality. The First International Conference on String Phenomenology concentrated on cosmological and phenomenologically oriented applications of string theory. The aim was to bring together experimental and theoretical... more...

  • Strings, Branes And Extra Dimensions (tasi 2001)by Steven S Gubser; Joseph D Lykken

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 351.00

    This book covers some recent advances in string theory and extra dimensions. Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, it presents a rare combination of formal and phenomenological topics, based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (2001) ? a traditional event that brings... more...

  • Brane-localized Gravityby Philip D Mannheim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00

    This timely and valuable book provides a detailed pedagogical introduction and treatment of the brane-localized gravity program of Randall and Sundrum, in which gravitational signals are able to localize around our four-dimensional world in the event that it is a brane embedded in an infinitely-sized, higher dimensional anti-de Sitter bulk space. A... more...

  • String Theory: From Gauge Interactions to Cosmologyby Laurent Baulieu; Jan de Boer; Boris Pioline

    Springer 2006; US$ 169.00

    String Theory is our best candidate for the unification of all fundamental forces, including gravity, in a consistent quantum framework. This work deals with this subject including topics such as the gauge/gravity correspondence, superstring cosmology and cosmic strings, topological string theory, and more. It is useful for students and experts. more...
