Compactification in string theory. In string theory, compactification is a generalization of Kaluza–Klein theory. It tries to reconcile the gap between the conception of our universe based on its four observable dimensions with the ten, eleven, or twenty-six dimensions which theoretical equations lead us to suppose the universe is made with. The book offers insights into string geometry that go beyond classical notions. Describing the theory from basic concepts, and providing numerous worked examples from conformal field theory and string theory, this reference is of interest to graduate students and researchers in physics and mathematics.

There is no experimental evidence that string theory is the correct description of our world and scant hope that hard evidence will arise in the near future. Moreover, string theory is very much a work in progress and certain aspects of the theory are far from understood.

The starting point for string theory is the idea that the point-like particles of particle physics can also be modeled as one-dimensional objects called strings. String theory describes how strings propagate through space and interact with each other.

Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond, begins with an introduction to supersymmetric string theories and goes on to a broad presentation of the important advances of recent years.

The book then treats string interactions: the general formalism, and detailed treatments of the tree level and one loop amplitudes/10(27). 2 Introduction: What is string theory. String theory is a quantum theory of 1D objects called strings. These strings come in open (free endpoints) and closed (connected endpoints) varieties.

Slightly more rigorously, it can be de ned as a quantum eld theory on the (1+1) dimensional worldsheet of. Edward Witten (born August 26, ) is an American theoretical physicist and professor of mathematical physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.

Witten is a researcher in string theory, quantum gravity, supersymmetric quantum field theories, and other areas of mathematical physics. In addition to his contributions to physics, Witten's work has significantly Doctoral advisor: David Gross.

String cosmology appears to have difficulties in explaining this transition. This is known in literature as the graceful exit problem. An inflationary cosmology implies the presence of a scalar field that drives inflation. In string cosmology, this arises from the so-called dilaton field.
