Gravity and Strings

Gravity and Strings is a self-contained, pedagogical exposition of this theory, its foundations and its basic results. In Part I, the foundations are traced back to the very early special-relativistic field theories My library Help Advanced Book Search.

Cambridge University Press Amazon. Cambridge University PressMar 25, – Science – pages. One gtavity feature of string theory is that it provides a theory of quantum gravity. In Part I, the foundations are traced back to the very early special-relativistic field theories of gravity, showing how such theories lead to general relativity.

High Energy Physics – Phenomenology

Gauge theories of gravity are then discussed and used to introduce supergravity theories. In Part II, some of the most interesting solutions of general relativity and its ortkn are studied.

The final Part presents and studies string theory from the effective action point of view, using the results found earlier in the book as background. This book will be useful as a reference book for graduate students and researchers, as well as a complementary textbook for courses on gravity, supergravity and string theory.
