Introduction to String Field Theory

Small book cover: Introduction to String Field Theory

Introduction to String Field Theory
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 247

Description:
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.
