String Theory and Branes
by

Publisher: King's College London
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.
