8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, this comprehensive volume covers recent advances in string theory and field theory dualities. It is based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (2003) a traditional event that brings together graduate students in high energy physics for an intensive course given by leaders in their fields. The first lecture by Paul Aspinwall is a description of branes in CalabiYau manifolds, which includes an introduction to the modern ideas of derived categories and their relation to Dbranes. Juan Maldacena's second lecture is a short introduction to the AdS/CFT correspondence with a short discussion on its plane wave limit. Tachyon condensation for open strings is discussed in the third lecture by Ashoke Sen while Eva Silverstein provides a useful summary of the various attempts to produce fourdimensional physics out of string theory and Mtheory in the fourth lecture. Matthew Strassler's fifth lecture is a careful discussion of a theory that has played a very important role in recent developments in string theory  a quantum field theory that produces a duality cascade which also has a large N gravity description. The sixth lecture by Washington Taylor explains how to perform perturbative computations using string field theory. The written presentation of these lectures is detailed yet straightforward, and they will be of great use to both students and experienced researchers in high energy theoretical physics
Progress In String Theory: Tasi 2003 Lecture Notes
by Juan Martín Maldacena
(
)
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This coffeetable book will delight and inform general readers curious about ideas of chaos, fractals, and nonlinear complex systems. Developed out of ten years of interdisciplinary seminars in chaos and complex systems at the University of WisconsinMadison, it features multiple ways of knowing: Robin Chapman's poems of everyday experience of change in a complex world, associated metaphorically with Julien Clinton Sprott's fullcolor computer art generated from billions of versions of only three simple equations for strange attractors, Julia sets, and iterated function systems; his definitions of 39 key terms; a mathematical appendix; and even a multiplechoice quiz to test understanding. Accompanied by a CDROM of the poet reading 13 poems and 1,000 images of chaos art from which slide shows can be generated and 100 highresolution posters created. It also includes a foreword by Cliff Pickover, author of "A Passion for Mathematics"
Einstein's dream
(
)
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This program focuses on efforts to complete Einstein's quest for a grand unifying theory that will explain all of the forces of nature in the same terms. Will string theory provide the key? Mathematical physicist Nathan Seiberg explains his research on string theory in various dimensions and on particle physics; Edward Witten, named one of the 25 most influential Americans by Time magazine, defines M theory; and theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena suggests a way to unite quantum mechanics and general relativity. A contradictory view of string theory is delivered with genial skepticism by Freeman Dyson. Segments highlighting Einstein's research are also included
Science and the ultimate reality celebrating the vision of John Archibald Wheeler and taking it forward into a new center of discovery
(
)
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide The program honored the vision of John Archibald Wheeler in his 90th birthday year. The challenge was to take this vision forward into a new century of discovery. Wheeler is renowned as both a research leader and as an extraordinary teacher for many of the 20th century's most creative physicists. The symposium brought together over 300 accomplished leaders and visionary younger scientists to explore some of the most perplexing questions in physics and cosmology. Speakers include Freeman Dyson, Anton Zeilinger, Nicolas Gisin, J. Richard Gott, Daniel Greenberger, Mary Rowe, Lucien Hardy, Juan Maldacena, Wojciech Zurek, Bryce DeWitt, Max Tegmark, Raymond Chiao, Christopher Monroe, Nideo Mabuchi, Aephraim Steinberg, Jaroslav Pelikan, Philip Clayton, Kitty Ferguson, Timothy Ferris, Charles Harper, Andreas Albrecht, Andrei Linde, Joao Magueiro, Lisa Randall, Lee Smolin, Robert Laughlin, George Ellis, Marcelo Gleiser, and Stuart Kauffman. Topics include a tribute to Wheeler, theory and experiment of quantum reality, and cosmology
