Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory : Michio Kaku :
I asked some of the leaders in this field to respond to this question. But notice that because of duality, a theory of small e which is easily solved is identical to a theory of large g which is difficult to solve. He feels that the key to solving string theory is to understand the under- lying principle behind the theory.
Unfortunately, this 12 dimensional theory is rather strange: These are the equations which govern light, TV, X-rays, radar, dynamos, motors, transformers, even the Internet and computers. Second Quantization and the Search for Geometry; 6. Prerequisites are an acquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. Compatifications and BPS States It would put an episode of Twilight Zone to shame.

It was somehow easy compared to Green-Schwarz-Witten or Polchinski, however, if one is able to bear the flaws in the book silently, then definitely the book gives a direction on how early research went for String Theory. Inalong with Prof. This feature has not been activated yet. The first is the most direct: Arun Kumar rated it go was amazing Jun 18, The book begins with a simple discussion of point particle theory, and uses the Feynman path integral technique to unify the presentation of superstrings.
Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory
Called by some, “the theory of everything,” superstrings may solve a problem that has eluded physicists for the past 50 years, the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory. The trail leading to the unified field theory, in fact, is littered with the wreckage of failed expeditions go dreams.
Ultimately, it may solve the nagging question of where strings come from. The non-perturbative region of Type IIa strings, which was previously a forbidden region, was revealed to be governed by 11 dimensional supergravity theory, with one dimension curled up. Kaku makes even the most complicated subjects understandable, the true mark of genius.

Devi Sai rated it it was amazing Mar 21, Nov 15, Gourab Bhattacharya rated it really liked it. Theor might be done by curling up 6 of the 10 dimensions, leaving us with a 4 dimensional theory that might resemble the Standard Model a bit. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Einstein once asked himself if God had any choice in making the universe. Imagine trying to live in a world with two times! For example, point particles are 0-branes, strings are 1-branes, membranes are 2-branes, and so on.
Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. But all the easy ideas were tried and shown to be wrong.
Refresh and try again. John Walker rated it really liked it Jan 10, Kikkawa, he wrote the first paper on string field theory, now a major branch supersstrings string theory, which summarizes each of the five string theories into a single equation. Then Nathan Seiberg and Witten brilliantly showed how another form of duality could solve for the non-perturbative region in four dimensional supersymmetric theories.
