# Lectures on string theory

@inproceedings{Lst1989LecturesOS, title={Lectures on string theory}, author={Dieter L{\"u}st and Stefan Theisen}, year={1989} }

This book provides an introduction to string theory, at present one of the fastest-growing areas in theoretical high-energy physics. It introduces modern techniques and concepts, such as conformal and superconformal field theory, Kac-Moody algebras, etc., stressing their relevance and application to string theory rather than the formal aspects. The reader is led from a basic discussion of the classical bosonic string to the construction of four-dimensional heterotic string models, an area of…
