Learning String Theory Online

  1. Oct 21, 2013 #1
    Where can I learn string theory online with the math and everything? ANY help appreciated. Tanks in advance.

    Ps I'm looking for links, I really can't afford books. I'm a high school student. I know the principles but haven't attempted any math above the Schrödinger equation for a quantum well. If I need extra math where can I learn that?

    Actually, I don't know. I found this a few years ago, and had the impression it had already been up for some years then. Maybe ZapperZ or D H or Borek would know?

    Do you really think you're ready for string theory?

    I think you should make sure you know how to walk before you try to skip. You might end up standing on your face.

    I think he needs to learn how to breathe first.

    I preffered the second one so far

    The fourth link is also nice but why is energy a vector?

    You mean in equation 1.1? That E vector is the electric field and the integral is calculating the energy contained in that field.
