 Publisher's Summary
 More than 1 million "Demystified" books have been sold. String theory is an emerging model of physics that can, in principle, explain all of the particles and fundamental forces of nature by modeling them as vibrations of tiny supersymmetric strings. Using the proven Demystified format, this book elucidates the highly mathematical and complex topic of string theory, covering key topics such as particle physics, quantum field theory, Dbrane physics, and different types of strings. You will learn the mathematical tools necessary to truly decipher string theory.
