    The problem is that: String theory is not a “theory”, String theory is a paradigm, in the same way as General relativity is a paradigm, once you have a specific model (i mean: a particular solution for the field equations) you could make predictions, notice that if you pick an arbitrary solution form the landscape of general relativity, it.

String cosmology appears to have difficulties in explaining this transition. This is known in literature as the graceful exit problem. An inflationary cosmology implies the presence of a scalar field that drives inflation. In string cosmology, this arises from the so-called dilaton field. If you are interested in what String Theory has to offer cosmology, and are prepared to put some effort into finding out this could be a useful text for you." (Dave Pike, The Observatory, Vol.

Cited by: String theory is a broad and varied subject that attempts to address a number of deep questions of fundamental physics. String theory has been applied to a variety of problems in black hole physics, early universe cosmology, nuclear physics, and condensed matter physics, and it has stimulated a number of major developments in pure mathematics.

Before string theory, there was Einstein’s relativity, and before that was Newton’s gravity, and for about two centuries before Newton, the laws governing the universe were believed, by most of the Western world, to be those set out by Aristotle. Understanding the later revolutions in cosmology starts with the original models of the universe developed [ ].

Cosmology describes the evolution of the Universe and is based on a description of its beginning from quantum fluctuations. String theory is the only known consistent theory of quantum gravity that can deal with the highest energy scales near the Author: Horaţiu Năstase.

String theory will hopefully help physicists understand more precisely what happened in those early moments of the universe, so understanding the big bang theory is a key component of string theory’s cosmological work. In the history of cosmology, it soon became evident that an expanding universe was once very much smaller — so small, in [ ].

An Introduction to String Theory Kevin Wray Abstract: This set of notes is based on the course “Introduction to String Theory” which was taught by Prof.

Kostas Skenderis in the spring of at the University of Amsterdam. We have also drawn on. String theory notched up an important success in when it was used to explain the surprisingly large entropy of black holes. For the first time, a result derived from classical physics had been derived using string theory, demonstrating the explicit connection between strings and.

As a result, only string theory can give a fully consistent picture of cosmological origins. This book describes the best current avenues for obtaining cosmology from string theory. It is aimed at graduate students, and also researchers, with some familiarity with cosmology and string theory, however no detailed knowledge is required.

Cosmology describes the evolution of the Universe and is based on a description of its beginning from quantum fluctuations. String theory is the only known consistent theory of quantum gravity that can deal with the highest energy scales near the.

As for the actual physics content of the book, it is great. It is not meant to focus on string theory alone (for that see "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene), but it does discuss string theory in some detail, with useful diagrams.

Susskind also discusses cosmology, branes, M-theory and other related by: What is string theory. String theory is an attempt to describe all particles and all forces in nature in one unified theoretical framework.

It encompasses quantum mechanics and gravity, and it is based on the idea that the fundamental building blocks of matter are not particles, but strings: objects which have some length, and which can vibrate in different ways.

As I explained in my book, Beyond the Cosmos, 3rd edition, physicists involved these six extra space dimensions as a way to bring consistency to and complete integration of particle physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, gravity, and general relativity.

String theory models are not the only models claiming to produce such consistency and. This book thus fills a huge gap by bringing together all the different strains of research into one single volume.

The resulting collection of selected articles presents the latest, ongoing results from renowned experts currently working in the field. From the contents: * Introduction to Cosmology and String Theory. The Nobel Symposium in on String Theory and Cosmology was a gathering of many of the most active and distinguished scientists in the world, including Stephen Hawking, Nobel Prize winner David Gross, and Andrei Linde.

The experts, comprising both theoreticians and experimentalists, were given the opportunity to discuss the present. I describe those aspects of string theory which are relevant for cosmology with emphasis on the problem of connecting string theory to observational : Norma G.

Sanchez. Besides being an excellent introduction to string theory, the book is also a unified presentation of the latest developments and open questions in fundamental physics, covering the importance of the basic building blocks of nature, including the recent Higgs discovery, to the latest developments in astrophysics, early universe cosmology, and.

String theory, a unified theory of all forces of nature, should be able to answer these questions. This book contains a pedagogical introduction to the basic notions of string theory and cosmology. It describes the new possible scenarios suggested by string theory for the primordial evolution of our Universe.

It discusses the main. Green, Schwarz, Witten: Superstring theory Becker, Becker, Schwarz: String Theory and M-Theory: A Modern Introduction Polchinski: String Theory. My personal favorite is BBS. Polchinski has all the details, but I never liked how that book is organized.

Also BBS sorta jumps right into the fun parts a bit faster. Book Cosmology, Physics A physicist casts a critical eye on popular ideas in cosmology, quantum mechanics, and string theory.

By Mario Livio 7 October, Fashion, Faith, and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universe The “fashion” in the book’s title refers mostly to the popularity of string theory and the so-called “M-theory. • J. Polchinski, String Theory This two volume work is the standard introduction to the subject.

Our lectures will more or less follow the path laid down in volume one covering the bosonic string. The book contains explanations and descriptions of many details that have been deliberately (and, I suspect, at times inadvertently) swept under a File Size: 1MB.

String theory describes nature on extremely small size scales and high energies that are all but inaccessible to modern physics. The ideal experiment would provide direct evidence of these strings. If you are interested in what String Theory has to offer cosmology, and are prepared to put some effort into finding out this could be a useful text for you." (Dave Pike, The Observatory, Vol.

(), June, ) "This book grew out of a series of lectures and seminars held over several years in various Italian universities. Price: $ At its core, string theory uses a model of one-dimensional strings in place of the particles of quantum physics.

These strings, the size of the Planck length ( m), vibrate at specific resonant frequencies. Some recent versions of string theory have predicted that the strings could have a longer length, up to nearly a millimeter in size, which would mean they're in the realm.

This book attempts to explain why 'string theory' may provide the comprehensive underlying theory that describes and explains our world. It is an enthusiastic view of how compactified string/M-theories (plus data that may be reachable) seem to have the possibilities of leading to a comprehensive underlying theory of particle physics and cosmology, perhaps : Morgan & Claypool Publishers.

Abstract. After introducing some basic aspects of strings and branes in Chap. 12, we move to cosmological models arising in or motivated by the theory, concentrating on those based upon \(\mathbb{K}\mathrm{LT}\) and large-volume uplifting scenarios [1–28] embedded in the string landscape [29–59] (reviews are [60–64]).

Uplifting scenarios realize a de Sitter. Gives a basic explanation of string theory, loop quantum gravity, and several other theories, including their application to black holes and cosmology. Includes commentary on the 'String Wars' and proposed experimental tests.

One of the great challenges for string cosmology is in producing signals that could distinguish string models of inflation from ordinary field theory ones. We have seen that DBI inflation was distinctive in that respect, since it can give large nongaussianity, in contrast to conventional single-field models (see however [51]).

This material is a portion of a book, also entitled "Inflation and String Theory", to be published by Cambridge University Press. Maurizio Gasperini is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Physics Department of the University of Bari, Italy.

He is the author of publications on gravitational theory, high-energy physics, and cosmology, and has twice won an "Award for Essays on Gravitation" from the Gravity Research Foundation ( and ).5/5(1).

Concept of black hole, cosmology, nuclear physics, matter physics etc are some of those concepts in which string theory is applied in order to solve a variety of questions. In the field of pure mathematics, many developments are carried.

In this book Stewart takes a look at the most important mathematical equations that have shaped our understanding of the universe.

Susskind: The Cosmic Landscape () – This book covers the often-controversial anthropic principle, string theory, and the idea of the multiverse. One of my favourites. String theory is an attempt to describe the whole universe under a single “theory of everything” by adding extra dimensions of spacetime and.

Cosmology in Gauge Field Theory and String Theory focuses on the cosmological implications of the gauge theories of particle physics and of string theory.

The book first examines the universe's series of phase transitions in which the successive gauge symmetries of the higher-temperature phase were spontaneously broken after the big bang.It then covers string geometry and flux compactifications, applications to cosmology and particle physics, black holes in string theory and M-theory, and the microscopic origin of black-hole entropy.

It concludes with Matrix theory, the AdS/CFT duality and its generalizations.In fact, recent progress in theoretical physics, and in particular in String Theory, suggests answers to the above questions, providing us with mathematical tools able in principle to reconstruct the history of the Universe even for times before the big the emerging cosmological scenario the Universe, at the epoch of the big bang.
