===books===<br />
[http://press.princeton.edu/titles/8456.html '''String Theory in a nutshell''']<br><br />
by Elias Kiritsis, (Princeton University Press, 2007, [http://users.physics.uoc.gr/~kiritsis/string-book/index.html Errata])<br><br />
This book is an up to date presentation of the main parts of modern string theory, targeting <br />
specialized students and postdocs entering or working in string theory.<br />
It contains also a large set of problems, as well as chapters on black-hole microstate counting, matrix models and an extendent<br />
exposition of the AdS/CFT correspondence. <br />
<br />
'''String Theory and M-Theory: A Modern Introduction '''<br><br />
by Katrin Becker, Melanie Becker and John Schwarz (CUP, 2006)<br><br />
This is a book that is intended to be a comprehensive introduction to the subject of string theory in a modern fashion, with rather rapid discussions of many modern developments including AdS/CFT. As such, it includes a lot of material with relatively less detailed explanation, which serves its purpose as an introduction very well. However, one does need some further readings to completely understand everything this book is trying to say. <br />
<br />
'''A First Course in String Theory'''<br><br />
by Barton Zwiebach, (CUP, 2003)<br><br />
This book is intended for the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. No familiarity with quantum field theory is assumed (although Zwiebach does assume a working knowledge of quantum mechanics). It focuses on the study of single<br />
strings and their interactions, which can be understood in some<br />
detail. Of necessity, however, it is impossible to address many<br />
advanced topics.<br />
<br />
'''String Theory'''<br><br />
'''Volume 1: An Introduction to the Bosonic String'''<br><br />
'''Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond'''<br><br />
by Joe Polchinski (two volumes, CUP, 1998, [http://www.kitp.ucsb.edu/~joep/errata.html errata])<br><br />
This book addresses the discoveries of the<br />
superstring revolutions of the early to mid 1990s, which mark the<br />
beginnings of modern string theory. Volume 1 quantises the<br />
bosonic string and uses this setting to introduce T-duality and<br />
D-branes without the complications of fermions. The first three chapters of volume 2 <br />
introduce superstrings, but quickly move beyond. The rest of<br />
the second book provides an introduction to nearly all modern string<br />
topics pre-dating the AdS/CFT duality. In particular, it includes D-branes,<br />
Orbifolds, Black Hole Entropy, and Mirror symmetry.<br><br />
Some of the errata were corrected in the reprinting in 2000.<br><br />
[http://arxiv.org/abs/0812.4408 A solution manual for Polchinski&#x27;s &quot;String Theory&quot;]<br><br />
by Matthew Headrick (0812.4408 [hep-th], 114 pages)<br />
<br />
'''Superstring Theory'''<br><br />
'''Volume 1: Introduction'''<br><br />
'''Volume 2: Loop Amplitudes, Anomalies and Phenomenology'''<br><br />
by Michael Green, John Schwarz and Edward Witten (two volumes, CUP, 1988)<br><br />
Volume 1 is the first of a classic two-volume string text by founders in the field. Though there are now many more modern<br />
texts, it containing many details that more recent texts<br />
must skim through to discuss modern topics. Volume 1 is concerned mainly with the free string, though it treats both bosonic and supersymmetric versions. Volume 2 addresses the details of loop<br />
calculations, but also discusses low-energy effective theories (in particular, supergravity) and compactifications (especially on Calabi-Yau manifolds). <br />
<br />
'''Supersymmetry and String Theory: Beyond the Standard Model'''<br><br />
by Michael Dine (CUP, 2007)<br />
<br />
'''Gravity and Strings'''<br><br />
by Tom&aacute;s Ort&iacute;n (CUP, 2004)<br />
<br />
[http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9709062 Introduction to Superstring Theory]<br><br />
by E. Kiritsis (Leuven University Press, 1998, hep-th/9709062, 244 pages, 22 figures)<br><br />
Also available from the arXiv. Kiritsis provides a pedagogical introduction starting with the point particle and the bosonic string, and <br />
then proceeds through conformal<br />
field theory and the superstring. Advanced topics treated include T- duality, anomalies, compactification and supersymmetry breaking, <br />
loop corrections, and non-perturbative dualities.<br />
<br />
'''Lectures on String Theory'''<br><br />
by D. L&uuml;st and S. Theisen (Springer-Verlag, 1989)<br><br />
This very useful text features a short route to the superstring and includes an excellent treatment of the heterotic string.<br />
<br />
'''Quantum Field Theory of Point Particles and Strings'''<br><br />
by B. Hatfield (Perseus Publishing, 1998)<br><br />
An updated version of Hatfield's 1992 book, the first half quickly reviews quantum field theory while the second introduces the very basics of strings.<br />
<br />
'''Gauge fields and Strings'''<br><br />
by A. M. Polyakov (Harwood Academic Publishers, 1987)<br><br />
This classic work uses a detailed treatment of quantum field theory in terms of first-quantized particles to make a natural transition to the first quantized string. Details of path-integral measures and other fundamentals are well-presented.<br />
<br />
'''Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory'''<br><br />
by M. Kaku (Springer Verlag, 1999)<br><br />
This updated version of an earlier text begins with the basics and, after some development, addresses advanced topics such as compactifications and M-theory. As a one-volume text, it cannot be comprehensive and, as a result, has a rather light discussion of D-branes.<br />
<br />
'''Strings, Conformal Fields, and M-Theory'''<br><br />
by M. Kaku (Springer Verlag, 2000)<br><br />
The intent of this text is to build on ''Introduction to Superstrings and M-theory'', addressing a number of more modern topics and illustrating the relationship to a broad range of related topics.<br />

by Jan Plefka (hep-th/0307101, 46 pages)<br><br />
Plefka's review of the plane-wave gauge/gravity duality concentrates on the gauge-theory side of<br />
the correspondence and introduces an effective formalism that reduces the gauge-theory computations to quantum mechanics.<br />
Plefka describes how string field theory calculations match gauge theory calculations. An elementary introduction to light-cone string field theory is included here as well.<br />

Tseytlin reviews how certain string states in Anti-de Sitter space (crossed with S^5) can be studied in detail using semiclassical methods, allowing detailed studies of the AdS/CFT duality to be carried out. These states have large angular momentum on the S^5 and their study is related to the above plane-wave limit.<br />

<div>SPIRES script is a program written in the [http://www.python.org/ python] programming language that accesses information on papers in the [http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/ SPIRES] online high energy physics literature database. It can access title, author, bibitem and [[References with BiBTeX|BiBTeX]] records, update your local BiBTeX library and download papers from the [http://www.arxiv.org/ arXiv]. A separate program [[#listcitations.py|listcitations.py]] reads through a TeX file and then looks up all the \cite{...} references and outputs the bibitems. Although originally written for the GNU/Linux command line, the code should be portable enough to run on any operating system with a python interpreter.<br />

[http://press.princeton.edu/titles/8456.html '''String Theory in a nutshell''']<br><br />
by Elias Kiritsis, (Princeton University Press, 2007, [http://users.physics.uoc.gr/~kiritsis/string-book/index.html Errata])<br><br />
This book is an up to date presentation of the main parts of modern string theory, targeting <br />
specialized students and postdocs entering or working in string theory.<br />
It contains also a large set of problems, as well as chapters on black-hole microstate counting, matrix models and an extendent<br />
exposition of the AdS/CFT correspondence. <br />
<br />
'''String Theory and M-Theory'''<br><br />
by Katrin Becker, Melanie Becker and John Schwarz (CUP, 2006)<br />
<br />
'''A First Course in String Theory'''<br><br />
by Barton Zwiebach, (CUP, 2003)<br><br />
This book is intended for the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. No familiarity with quantum field theory is assumed (although Zwiebach does assume a working knowledge of quantum mechanics). It focuses on the study of single<br />
strings and their interactions, which can be understood in some<br />
detail. Of necessity, however, it is impossible to address many<br />
advanced topics.<br />
<br />
'''String Theory'''<br><br />
'''Volume 1: An Introduction to the Bosonic String'''<br><br />
'''Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond'''<br><br />
by Joe Polchinski (two volumes, CUP, 1998, [http://www.kitp.ucsb.edu/~joep/errata.html errata])<br><br />
This book addresses the discoveries of the<br />
superstring revolutions of the early to mid 1990s, which mark the<br />
beginnings of modern string theory. Volume 1 quantises the<br />
bosonic string and uses this setting to introduce T-duality and<br />
D-branes without the complications of fermions. The first three chapters of volume 2 <br />
introduce superstrings, but quickly move beyond. The rest of<br />
the second book provides an introduction to nearly all modern string<br />
topics pre-dating the AdS/CFT duality. In particular, it includes D-branes,<br />
Orbifolds, Black Hole Entropy, and Mirror symmetry.<br><br />
Some of the errata were corrected in the reprinting in 2000.<br><br />

<br />
'''Superstring Theory'''<br><br />
'''Volume 1: Introduction'''<br><br />
'''Volume 2: Loop Amplitudes, Anomalies and Phenomenology'''<br><br />
by Michael Green, John Schwarz and Edward Witten (two volumes, CUP, 1988)<br><br />
Volume 1 is the first of a classic two-volume string text by founders in the field. Though there are now many more modern<br />
texts, it containing many details that more recent texts<br />
must skim through to discuss modern topics. Volume 1 is concerned mainly with the free string, though it treats both bosonic and supersymmetric versions. Volume 2 addresses the details of loop<br />
calculations, but also discusses low-energy effective theories (in particular, supergravity) and compactifications (especially on Calabi-Yau manifolds). <br />
<br />

<br />

by E. Kiritsis (Leuven University Press, 1998, hep-th/9709062, 244 pages, 22 figures)<br><br />
Also available from the arXiv. Kiritsis provides a pedagogical introduction starting with the point particle and the bosonic string, and <br />
then proceeds through conformal<br />
field theory and the superstring. Advanced topics treated include T- duality, anomalies, compactification and supersymmetry breaking, <br />
loop corrections, and non-perturbative dualities.<br />
<br />
'''Lectures on String Theory'''<br><br />
by D. L&uuml;st and S. Theisen (Springer-Verlag, 1989)<br><br />
This very useful text features a short route to the superstring and includes an excellent treatment of the heterotic string.<br />
<br />
'''Quantum Field Theory of Point Particles and Strings'''<br><br />
by B. Hatfield (Perseus Publishing, 1998)<br><br />
An updated version of Hatfield's 1992 book, the first half quickly reviews quantum field theory while the second introduces the very basics of strings.<br />
<br />
'''Gauge fields and Strings'''<br><br />
by A. M. Polyakov (Harwood Academic Publishers, 1987)<br><br />
This classic work uses a detailed treatment of quantum field theory in terms of first-quantized particles to make a natural transition to the first quantized string. Details of path-integral measures and other fundamentals are well-presented.<br />
<br />
'''Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory'''<br><br />
by M. Kaku (Springer Verlag, 1999)<br><br />
This updated version of an earlier text begins with the basics and, after some development, addresses advanced topics such as compactifications and M-theory. As a one-volume text, it cannot be comprehensive and, as a result, has a rather light discussion of D-branes.<br />
<br />
'''Strings, Conformal Fields, and M-Theory'''<br><br />
by M. Kaku (Springer Verlag, 2000)<br><br />
The intent of this text is to build on ''Introduction to Superstrings and M-theory'', addressing a number of more modern topics and illustrating the relationship to a broad range of related topics.<br />

<br />
http://arxiv.org/oai2/ is baseURL<br />
<br />
http://citebase.eprints.org/cgi-bin/oai2 is the baseURL OAI2 interface for citebase data<br />
<br />
http://www.citebase.org/oai?verb=GetRecord&identifier=oai:arXiv.org:hep-th/9901001&metadataPrefix=oai_dc<br />
<br />
A request needs a very and record identifier, e.g. http://arxiv.org/oai2?verb=GetRecord&identifier=oai:arXiv.org:hep-th/9901001&metadataPrefix=oai_dc<br />
<br />
It would be good to get a utility to harvest paper metadata (see http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html )<br />
<br />
Make an HTTP request to the repository for oai:arXiv.org:cs/0112017, which responds in XML.</div>Tbrownhttps://stringwiki.org/w/index.php?title=String_Theory_Wiki:About&diff=1704String Theory Wiki:About2006-12-24T15:06:44Z<p>Tbrown: Redirecting to Meta</p>
