Learning String Theory Online

Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

IDK about string theory online, but Britney Spears has a nice site which explains semiconductor physics, if you are interested:

Lol that was so good. Definitely sending this to my professor.
