Strings, Branes and Gravity

Strings, Branes and Gravity

Many of the topics in this book are outgrowths of the spectacular new understanding of duality in string theory which emerged around 1995. They include the AdS/CFT correspondence and its relation to holography, the matrix theory formulation of M theory, the structure of black holes in string theory, the structure of D-branes and M-branes, and detailed development of dualities with N = 1 and N = 2 supersymmetry. In addition, there are lectures covering experimental and phenomenological aspects of the Standard Model and its extensions, and discussions on cosmology including both theoretical aspects and the exciting new experimental evidence for a non-zero cosmological constant. Contents:TASI Lectures on Branes, Black Holes and Anti-De Sitter Space (M J Duff)D-Brane Primer (C V Johnson)TASI Lectures on Black Holes in String Theory (A W Peet)TASI Lectures: Cosmology for String Theorists (S M Carroll)TASI Lectures on Matrix Theory (T Banks)TASI Lectures on M Theory Phenomenology (M Dine)TASI Lectures: Introduction to the AdS/CFT Correspondence (I R Klebanov)TASI Lectures on Compactification and Duality (D R Morrison)Compactification, Geometry and Duality: N=2 (P S Aspinwall)TASI Lectures on Non-BPS D-Brane Systems (J H Schwarz)Lectures on Warped Compactifications and Stringy Brane Constructions (S Kachru)TASI Lectures on the Holographic Principle (D Bigatti & L Susskind) Readership: Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers in high energy physics. Keywords:Strings;Branes;Gravity;Black Holes;Supersymmetry;Cosmology;Matrix Theory;Compactification;Duality;Geometry;Warped Compactifications;Holographic PrincipleReviews:“For those in the field, the volume is an excellent addition to the line of perennially useful and timely collections of TASI lectures. For the community at large, it provides a detailed and technical introduction to many of the fascinating and promising ideas currently in vogue in string theory and formal particle physics.”Contemporary Physics
