Chern-Simons Theory, Matrix Models, and Topological Strings
by Marcos Marino (208 pages, Oxford University Press, 2005)


Geometry As Seen By String Theory
by Hirosi Ooguri (0901.1881 [hep-th], 29 pages, 2 figures)

Cargese lectures on string theory with eight supercharges
by Monica Guica, Andrew Strominger (0704.3295, 30 pages, 7 figures)
These lectures give an introduction to the interrelated topics of Calabi-Yau compactification of the type II string, black hole attractors, the all-orders entropy formula, the dual (0,4) CFT, topological strings and the OSV conjecture.
