Finding out about string theory

  1. May 19, 2010 #1
    Hello, I am intrested in finding out about string theory. I have done reasearch on the internet but that is the basics. I am hoping that I can find someone who works in the field or has a good grasp of M-theory to explain it to me.

    Thank you

    You should begin by researching the 10-D string theories first. There are several good book/references out there in case you are interested.

    For warm up, you can start with
    B. Greene, The Elegant Universe
    After that, you should study
    B. Zwiebach, A First Course in String Theory
    When you finish these, then you are ready for the serious stuff.

    Also, as pre-requisites you should have a good understanding of quantum field theory and general relativity.
