**String Theory and Branes**

by Neil Lambert

**Publisher**: King's College London 2010**Number of pages**: 55

**Description**:

This course will introduce string theory, which, for good or bad, has become the dominant, and arguably only, framework for a complete theory of all known physical phenomena. As such it is in some sense a course to introduce the modern view of particle physics at its most fundamental level.
