A very naive question from a beginner:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I only know a very limited amount of string theory, and as far as I know it, it is a quantum theory in the strictest sense, namely that we still have a state in Hilbert space which evolves unitarily ; it is just the "theory to be quantized" that changes, from, say, QFT, into something vastly more complex (or simple, depends on the viewpoint :-). In fact, all I know about it is about the "theory to be quantized". Is this view, that superstring theory is a quantum theory, essentially correct, or am I completely off ?

cheers,

Patrick.
