The history of string theory.

  1. Dec 11, 2004 #1
    I just wanted to know about the history of the string theory development.
    I mean the klein's (or someone else!!!) interpretation about the charge that resulted in assumption of higher order dimentions of space.
    I just wanted to know the historical story of it.
    Any link will be usefull.
    Thanks a lot.
    Somy :smile:

    Check out http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program.html

    Its a program made based on the book 'The elegant universe'. The second half of the second program (there are three programs in total) and the third one give a quick run through how the theory evolved.
