WP24 String Theory II (TD2)

The module begins by developing important concepts such as D-branes, supersymmetric compactifications on orientifolds, orbifolds and Calabi-Yau spaces. Further topics are the computation of string amplitudes (tree-level, 1-loop, automorphic functions), string dualities (M-theory, S-duality, mirror symmetry) and extra dimensions. The main goals of this module is to master perturbative superstring theory and to understand basic non-perturbative properties.
