9781571461315: Superstring Theory (volume 1 of the Advanced Lectures in Mathematics series)

Interest in string theory is driven largely by the hope that it will evolve to be the ultimate “Theory of Everything.” Work on string theory has led to advances in many branches of mathematics. This rapidly developing subject is one of the mainstream topics of mathematics in the 21st century. The current volume presents lectures from the important String Theory International Conference held in 2002 in Hangzhou, China. These include talks given by several mathematicians of particular prominence in the field, among them Stephen Hawking and Edward Witten.
