Overview

In recent years, superstring theory has emerged as a promising approach to reconciling general relativity with quantum mechanics and unifying the fundamental interactions. Problems that have seemed insuperable in previous approaches take on a totally new character in the context of superstring theory, and some of them have been overcome. Interest in the subject has greatly increased following a succession of exciting recent developments. This two-volume book attempts to meet the need for a systematic exposition of superstring theory and its applications accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

This is a pedagogical introduction of string theory; it was the owed reference until the appearance of the book of Polchinki in 1998. In a fastly developping field like string theory writting a complete reference is indeed a difficult task, and this book is still a major reference in the field.
