Summary:
Michael Green discusses how string theory may provide the framework for a consistent quantum theory of gravity unified with the other physical forces. He reviews the underlying principles of the theory illustrating interconnections with other areas of theoretical physics, such a as statistical mechanics on random surfaces.

Abstract:

Michael Green discusses how string theory may provide the framework for a consistent quantum theory of gravity unified with the other physical forces. He reviews the underlying principles of the theory illustrating interconnections with other areas of theoretical physics, such a as statistical mechanics on random surfaces. Recent developments, such as the string description of black holes and the search for a quantum description of space-time based on string theory are also described.
