              The essential introduction to modern string theory-now fully expanded and revised String Theory in a Nutshell is the definitive introduction to modern string theory. Written by one of the world's authorities, this concise and accessible book starts with basic definitions and guid...es readers from classic topics to the most exciting frontiers of research today. It treats perturbative string theory and its Conformal Field Theory (CFT) tools in detail while also developing nonperturbative aspects and exploring the unity of string interactions. The book covers black holes, their microscopic entropy, the AdS/CFT correspondence, flux compactifications, matrix model tools for string theory, and more. It also includes nearly 500 exercises and serves as a self-contained guide to the literature. This fully updated edition features an entirely new chapter on flux compactifications in string theory, and the chapter on AdS/CFT has been substantially expanded. In addition, the discussion of conformal field theory has been extensively revised to make it more student-friendly. Now fully expanded and revised Features a new chapter on flux compactifications in string theory Provides expanded coverage of AdS/CFT and a more accessible treatment of conformal field theory Includes nearly 500 exercises The essential one-volume reference for students and researchers in theoretical high-energy physics Ideal for mathematicians and physicists specializing in theoretical cosmology, QCD, and novel approaches to condensed matter systems An online illustration package is available to professors
