How flux compactification solves the moduli space problem in string theory? Please provide some details and, if posible, an example. Thanks in advance.
When putting fermions on the string, we have to choose boundary conditions for our spinor fields - Ramond or Neveu-Schwarz. NS conditions on the closed string have antiperiodic conditions such as ...
I am a graduate level student, interested in String theory. I was reading a paper on "String Theory and Einstein's Dream" published in Current Science, vol. 89, No. 12, p 2045, Dec. 25, 2005. and I ...
Can the study of the quantum information structure in QFT with holographic duals be relevant to string theory?
I'm interested in characterizing the behaviour of measures of quantum information in strongly correlated quantum field theories which admit a gravity dual description, e.g through AdS/CFT duality. In ...
If two ends of a rope are pulled with forces of equal magnitude and opposite direction, the tension at the center of the rope must be zero. True or false? The answer is false. I chose true though and ...
