Description:

Twenty-five years ago, Michel Green, John Schwarz and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published at the height of the first revolution in string theory, these books went on to define the field. The subject is now undergoing a second revolution following numerous developments and the systematic exposition of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. A self-contained introduction to superstrings, Volume 1 begins with an elementary treatment of the bosonic string, before describing the incorporation of additional degrees of freedom: fermionic degrees of freedom leading to supersymmetry and internal quantum numbers leading…
