To have a consistent superstring theory (which is to avoid the conformal anomaly on the worldsheet CFT) we are forced to build our theory on the critical dimension $n=10$. However, the Standard ...
Within the framework of string theory, I have read in numerous articles such as the introduction of this this in which it is stated that the gauge theories living on a stack of D-branes can be used to ...
What lessons do we have from string theory regarding the fate of singularities in general relativity? What happens to black hole singularities? What happens to cosmological singularities? Which ...
This question arises in a somewhat naive form because I am largely unfamiliar with String Theory. I do know that it incorporates higher space dimensions where I shall take the overall dimensionality ...
