  • 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... more...

  • Brane-localized Gravityby Philip D Mannheim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 89.00

    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...

  • D-Branesby Clifford V. Johnson

    Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 76.00

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

  • Finite Superstringsby John Taylor; P.C. Bressloff; A. Restuccia

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 74.00

    This is the first complete account of the construction and finiteness analysis of multi-loop scattering amplitudes for superstrings, and of the guarantee that for certain superstrings (in particular the heterotic one), the symmetries of the theory in the embedding space-time are those of the super-poincaré group SP10 and that the multi-loop... more...

  • A First Course in String Theoryby Barton Zwiebach

    Cambridge University Press 1753; US$ 84.00

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

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

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 231.00

    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...

  • Mathematical Aspects of String Theoryby Stephen Shing-Toung Yau

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1987; US$ 141.00

    Contents: Introduction to Quantum Field Theory, Path Integrals and String (B Hatfield); From Polyakov to Moduli (J Polchinski); Geometry of Quantum Strings (E D'Hoker & D H Phong); BRST Quantization and BRST Cohomology (N Marcus & A Sagnotti); Analytic Structure of Two-Dimensional Quantum Field Theories (P Nelson); Geometrical Meaning of... more...

  • Not Even Wrongby Peter Woit

    Basic Books 2007; US$ 17.99

    Has physics gone off in the wrong direction? Peter Woit presents the other side of the growing debate on string theory--arguing that it's not even science more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 150.00

    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...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    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...
