In his controversial book "The Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next", theoretical physicist Lee Smolin points out "five great problems in theoretical physics." 2 days ago String theory, often called the “theory of everything,” is a relatively young science that includes such unusual concepts as superstrings, branes, and extra dimensions. Scientists are hopeful that string theory will unlock one of the biggest mysteries of the universe, namely how gravity and quantum physics fit ://

The two volumes that comprise String Theory provide an up-to-date, comprehensive account of string theory. Volume 1 provides a thorough introduction to the bosonic string, based on the Polyakov path integral and conformal field theory. The first four chapters introduce the central ideas of string theory, the tools of conformal field theory, the Polyakov path integral, and the covariant ?id=54DGYyNAjacC.

Lastly, we’ve got the Lectures on String Theory by D Lust and S Theisen. This is the book by Dieter Lust and Stefan Theisen, which I included partly for sentimental reasons because it is, in fact, the book from which I learned string theory.
