#### The Little Book of String Theory

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95The 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...

#### A First Course in String Theory

Cambridge University Press 1753; US$ 84.00Accessible introduction to string theory for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Geometry and Physics of Branes

CRC Press 2002; US$ 231.00Branes 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...

#### String Theory and M-Theory

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 96.00Graduate textbook for courses in string theory. more...

#### Brane-localized Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 94.00This 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 Phenomenology 2003, Proceedings Of The 2nd International Conference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 202.00This 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 Conference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 160.00String 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)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 216.00This 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...
