M-Theory: Maybe Even More Dimensions Can Fix String Theory

Journal of High Energy Physics.One of the vibrational states of a string corresponds to the graviton, a quantum mechanical particle that carries the gravitational force. Die letzte Flucht / Georg Dengler Bd.6 At low energies, the superstring theories are approximated by supergravity in ten spacetime dimensions.What is that "somewhere new"? Duden-Ratgeber Die schriftliche Arbeit Dirichlet Branes and Mirror Symmetry.Charles Thorn, Peter Goddard and Richard Brower went on to prove that there are no wrong-sign propagating states in dimensions less than or equal to 26. One of the goals of current research in string theory is to find a solution of the theory that reproduces the observed spectrum of elementary particles, with a small cosmological constant, containing dark matter and a plausible mechanism for cosmic inflation.Homological algebra of mirror symmetry.

PDF An Introduction to String Theory

CS1 maint: archived copy as title ( link) Response to review of The Trouble with Physics by Joe Polchinski The original version of string theory was bosonic string theory, but this version described only bosons, a class of particles which transmit forces between the matter particles, or fermions.For example, the type I theory includes both open strings (which are segments with endpoints) and closed strings (which form closed loops), while types IIA and IIB include only closed strings. In his book criticizing string theory, Peter Woit views the status of string theory research as unhealthy and detrimental to the future of fundamental physics.Michio Kaku and Keiji Kikkawa gave a different formulation of the bosonic string, as a string field theory, with infinitely many particle types and with fields taking values not on points, but on loops and curves. If one picks among this large set just those states whose properties agree with present experimental observations, it is likely there still will be such a large number of these that one can get just about whatever value one wants for the results of any new observation.Interest in eleven-dimensional supergravity soon waned as various flaws in this scheme were discovered.
