Download or read book entitled Basic Concepts of String Theory by author: Ralph Blumenhagen which was release on 04 October 2012 and published by Springer Science & Business Media with total page 784 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. The purpose of this book is to thoroughly prepare the reader for research in string theory at an intermediate level. As such it is not a compendium of results but intended as textbook in the sense that most of the material is organized in a pedagogical and self-contained fashion. Beyond the basics, a number of more advanced topics are introduced, such as conformal field theory, superstrings and string dualities - the text does not cover applications to black hole physics and cosmology, nor strings theory at finite temperatures. End-of-chapter references have been added to guide the reader wishing to pursue further studies or to start research in well-defined topics covered by this book.
