**UNRAVEL the mystery of STRING THEORY**

Trying to understand string theory but ending up with your brain in knots? Here's your lifeline! This straightforward guide explains the fundamental principles behind this cutting-edge concept.

*String Theory Demystified* elucidates the goal of the theory--to combine general relativity and quantum theory into a single, unified framework. You'll learn about classical strings, conformal field theory, quantization, compactification, and T duality. The book covers supersymmetry and superstrings, D-branes, the holographic principle, and cosmology. Hundreds of examples and illustrations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce learning.

This fast and easy guide offers:

- Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
- Sample problems with worked solutions
- Coverage of equations of motion, the energy-momentum tensor, and conserved currents
- A discussion of the Randall-Sundrum model
- A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, *String Theory Demystified* is your key to comprehending this theory of everything.
