Building on the foundations laid in his earlier book "Introduction to Superstrings", Professor Kaku discusses such topics as the classification of conformal string theories, the non-polynomial closed string field theory, matrix models and topological field theory. The presentation of the material is organized in self-contained sections. Several chapters review material expounded in the earlier book. This book aims to provide students with an understanding of the main areas of current progress in string theory. This work on the general theory of fields and particles, mathematical physics, quantum physics, theory of quantized fields, manifolds and differential topology is intended for the use of physicists working in elementary particle theory and mathematicians.

Review:

From the reviews:

"...because of its wide range in topics, it becomes extremely handy as a 'reference manual'...Kaku's book covers most of the 'hot topics' from the period 1985 through 1996 in a concise but still quite complete way, it fulfills this task in a superb way." Physicalia

"¿ A comprehensive survey of essentially all recent research undertaken in string theory and related fields¿ the author¿s ability to present such an enormous variety of material is astonishing, resulting in a book that is up-to-date and thorough." Physics Today
