Introduction to String Field Theory
by Warren Siegel
Publisher: arXiv 2001
Number of pages: 247
Several of the early chapters are actually on the topic of general (particle/string) field theory, but explained from a new point of view resulting from insights gained from string field theory. A standard course on quantum field theory is assumed as a prerequisite.

This short book is an introduction to some recent developments in string theory and M theory. The author tries to concentrate on the main physical aspects, and often leaves more technical details to the original literature.

This volume highlights the interface between string theory and algebraic geometry. The topics covered include manifolds of special holonomy, supergravity, supersymmetry, D-branes, the McKay correspondence and the Fourier-Mukai transform.

This course will introduce string theory, which has become the dominant framework for a complete theory of all physical phenomena. As such it is in some sense a course to introduce the modern view of particle physics at its most fundamental level.
A short introduction to superstring theory. From the table of contents: Classical Theory of String; Quantization; Supersymmetry and Superstring; Compactification; Types of Superstring Theory; M-theory; Problems and Future Development.
