Superstring theory by
M Green(
)
142 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, superstring theory has emerged as a promising approach to reconciling general relativity with quantum mechanics and unifying the fundamental interactions. Problems that have seemed insuperable in previous approaches take on a totally new character in the context of superstring theory, and some of them have been overcome. Interest in the subject has greatly increased following a succession of exciting recent developments. This twovolume book attempts to meet the need for a systematic exposition of superstring theory and its applications accessible to as wide an audience as possible. Amazon

Special relativity : from Einstein to strings by
Patricia M Schwarz(
)
25 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is written as a textbook for the selflearner whose physics background includes a minimum of one year of university physics with calculus. More advanced mathematical topics, such as group theory, are explained as they arise. The readership is expected to include high school and college physics educators seeking to improve and update their own understanding of special relativity in order that they may teach it better, science and engineering undergraduates who want to extend their cursory knowledge of relativity to greater depth, and physics graduate students looking for a simple unified treatment of material that usually appears in the graduate physics curriculum in a somewhat disconnected fashion."Jacket

String theory and Mtheory : a modern introduction by
Katrin Becker(
)
23 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"String theory is one of the most exciting and challenging areas of modern theoretical physics. This book guides the reader from the basics of string theory to very recent developments at the frontier of string theory research." "This book is ideal for graduate students studying modern string theory, and it will make an excellent textbook for a 1year course on string theory. It will also be useful for researchers interested in learning about developments in modern string theory. The book contains about 120 solved exercises, as well as about 200 homework problems, solutions of which are available for lecturers on a password protected website."Jacket

Superstrings : the first 15 years of superstring theory by
John H Schwarz(
Book
)
28 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The discovery by Green and Schwarz in 1984 that tendimensional superstring theory is anomalyfree and finite only if the YangMills gauge group is SO(32) or E8 x E8 has made the phenomenological possibilities of superstrings evident. Ths has resulted in a sudden surge of interest in superstrings unification. Since this fastdeveloping field is new to almost all theoretical physicist, this collection of basic pre1985 references should be very valuable. This two volumes contain over 1000 pages of reprints plus some introductory comments by J Schwarz. Contents: Volume 1: Review of Bosonic Strin

Elementary particles and the universe : essays in honor of Murray GellMann by
John H Schwarz(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Professor Murray GellMann is one of the most influential and brilliant scientists of the twentieth century. His work on symmetries, including the invention of the 'quark', in the 1950s and early 1960s has provided a foundation for much of modern particle physics and was recognised by the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969. This book is a collection of research articles especially written by eminent scientists to celebrate GellMann's 60th birthday, in September 1989. The main body of contributions are concerned with theoretical particle physics and its applications to cosmology

Twentyfive years ago, Michael Green, John Schwarz, and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published during a period of rapid progress in this subject, these volumes were highly influential for a generation of students and researchers. Despite the immense progress that has been made in the field since then, the systematic exposition of the foundations of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. A selfcontained introduction to superstrings, Volume 1 begins with an elementary treatment of the bosonic string, before describing the incorporation of additional degrees of freedom: fermionic degrees of freedom leading to supersymmetry and internal quantum numbers leading to gauge interactions. A detailed discussion of the evaluation of treeapproximation scattering amplitudes is also given. Featuring a new Preface setting the work in context in light of recent advances, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in general relativity and elementary particle theory
