Unfortunately, this 12 dimensional theory is rather strange: Superstrings and M-theory are provocative and controversial, but unarguably among the most interesting and active areas of research in current physics.

Superstribgs trying to live in a world with two times! He feels that the key to solving string theory is to understand the under- lying principle behind the theory.
The first is the most direct: Anomalies and the Atiyah-Singer Theorem; 9. Now, here is a thoroughly revised, second edition of a course-tested comprehensive introductory graduate text theiry superstrings which stresses the most current areas of interest, not covered in other presentations, including: But although Einstein was the first one to set off on this noble hunt and track the footprints left by the lion, he ultimately lost the trail and wandered off into the wilderness.
Prerequisites are an aquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. Kikkawa, he wrote the first paper on string field theory, now a major branch of string theory, which summarizes each of the five string theories into a single equation. Inalong with Prof.
But since they are the same theory, we can use duality to solve for the non-perturbative region. He is also author of the popular science books: Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory. Lurking in go 11th dimension was an entirely new theory which could reduce down to 11 dimensional supergravity as well as 10 dimensional string theory and p-brane theory.
