One beautiful characteristic of string idea is that it offers a conception of quantum gravity. Gravity and Strings is a self-contained, pedagogical exposition of this thought, its foundations and its easy effects. partly I, the principles are traced again to the very early special-relativistic box theories of gravity, displaying how such theories result in basic relativity. Gauge theories of gravity are then mentioned and used to introduce supergravity theories. partially II, essentially the most fascinating ideas of normal relativity and its generalizations are studied. the ultimate half offers and stories string thought from the powerful motion perspective, utilizing the consequences discovered prior within the ebook as history. This 2004 e-book should be worthwhile as a reference booklet for graduate scholars and researchers, in addition to a complementary textbook for classes on gravity, supergravity and string theory.
