We review the foundations as well as a number of important applications of light-cone dynamics. Topics covered are: relativistic particle dynamics, reparametrization invariance, Dirac's front form, light-cone quantization of fields via Schwinger's quantum action principle or Faddeev-Jackiw reduction, light-cone vacuum and wave functions, zero modes and spontaneous symmetry breaking, `t Hooft and Schwinger model, and the light-cone wave function of the pion. 
Light-Cone Quantization: Foundations and Applications
These lecture notes review the foundations and some applications of light-cone quantization. First I explain how to choose a time in special relativity. Inclusion of Poincare invariance naturally
String theory and the classical stability of plane waves
The presence of fields with negative mass-squared typically leads to some form of instability in standard field theories. The observation that, at least in the light-cone gauge, strings propagating

0-Brane Matrix Dynamics for QCD Purposes: Regge Trajectories
The energy spectrum of two 0-branes for fixed angular momentum in 2+1 dimensions is calculated by the Rayleigh-Ritz method. The basis function used for each angular momentum consists of 80
D0-branes as light-front confined quarks
Abstract. We argue that different aspects of light-front QCD at the confined phase can be recovered by the matrix quantum mechanics of D0-branes. The relevant matrix quantum mechanics is obtained
Regge Trajectories by 0-Brane Matrix Dynamics
The energy spectrum of two 0-branes for fixed angular momentum in 2+1 dimensions is calculated by the Rayleigh-Ritz method. The basis function used for each angular momentum consists of 80
Light Mesons on the Light Front
We study the properties of light mesons in the scalar, pseudo-scalar, and vector channels within the light-front quantization, by using the (one flavor) Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model with vector
Canonical formulation of light-front gluodynamics and quantization of non-Abelian plane waves
Without gauge fixing, canonical variables for the light-front SU(2) gluodynamics are determined. The Gauss law is written in terms of the canonical variables. The system is qualified as a generalized
