The notion field of Quantum Field Theory is deduced from the combination of Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity.The local characteristic of field is led from Cluster Decomposition Principle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

String Theory is also a combination between Quantum Mechanics and Relativity Theory.Then I wonder whether the String Theory obeys Local Principle or not?Can we consider String Theory as a special type of Quantum Field Theory?
