Superstring theory by
M Green(
)
138 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,725 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

4 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the problem of unifying quantum mechanics and gravity in a single coherent theory, the Mtheory has emerged as a likely candidate. Edward Witten, one of the world's boldest innovators in this field, presents his lecture in completely nontechnical terms not only for mathematics and physics students but also for students with no scientific or mathematical training

Superstring theory by
M Green(
Book
)
4 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Einstein's dream(

)
2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program focuses on efforts to complete Einstein's quest for a grand unifying theory that will explain all of the forces of nature in the same terms. Will string theory provide the key? Mathematical physicist Nathan Seiberg explains his research on string theory in various dimensions and on particle physics; Edward Witten, named one of the 25 most influential Americans by Time magazine, defines M theory; and theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena suggests a way to unite quantum mechanics and general relativity. A contradictory view of string theory is delivered with genial skepticism by Freeman Dyson. Segments highlighting Einstein's research are also included. (57 minutes)

Axions in String Theory(
)
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the context of string theory, axions appear to provide the most plausible solution of the strong CP problem. However, as has been known for a long time, in many stringbased models, the axion coupling parameter Fa is several orders of magnitude higher than the standard cosmological bounds. We reexamine this problem in a variety of models, showing that Fa is close to the GUT scale or above in many models that have GUTlike phenomenology, as well as some that do not. On the other hand, in some models with Standard Model gauge fields supported on vanishing cycles, it is possible for Fa to be well below the GUT scale
