The best book to learn quantum field theory is the book “ Quantum field theory for the gifted amateur “, by Lancaster and Blundell. String theory is a theoretical framework that attempts to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics. In string theory, the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. String theory describes how strings propagate through space and interact with each other.

String Vacua: "Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Introduction International Student Edition" by Michio Kaku Quantum field theory has emerged as the most successful physical framework describing the subatomic world. Both its computational power and its conceptual scope are remarkable/5. At its core, string theory uses a model of one-dimensional strings in place of the particles of quantum physics. These strings, the size of the Planck length ( m), vibrate at specific resonant frequencies. Some recent versions of string theory have predicted that the strings could have a longer length, up to nearly a millimeter in size, which would mean they're in the realm that.

Loop quantum gravity is string theory’s biggest competitor. It gets less press than string theory, in part because it has a fundamentally more limited goal: a quantum theory of gravity. Loop quantum gravity performs this feat by trying to quantize space itself — in other words, treat space like it . String theory, often called the “theory of everything,” is a relatively young science that includes such unusual concepts as superstrings, branes, and extra dimensions. Scientists are hopeful that string theory will unlock one of the biggest mysteries of the universe, namely how gravity and quantum .

This is the book by Dieter Lust and Stefan Theisen, which I included partly for sentimental reasons because it is, in fact, the book from which I learned string theory. But it’s also a great book. The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene is a general introduction to cosmology and string theory.

It is a beautifully written book. However, it is not for beginners/5. "Kaku’s book, at pages, is a comprehensive, self-contained text on string theory [It] contains useful summaries of mathematical topics such as index theory, cohomology, and Kahler manifolds.

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. Quantum Space is an overview of Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG), which is the main contender to String Theory for a quantum theory of gravity.

Brian Randolph Greene (born February 9, ) is an American theoretical physicist, mathematician, and string has been a professor at Columbia University since and chairman of the World Science Festival since co-founding it in Greene has worked on mirror symmetry, relating two different Calabi–Yau manifolds (concretely, relating the conifold to one of its orbifolds).Doctoral advisor: Graham G.
