I have a great interest in the area of string theory, but since I am more focused on mathematics, I was wondering if there is any book out there that covers mathematical aspects of string theory. I did some research and found some resources, at these notes: http://www.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/~rehmann/ECM/cdrom/3ecm/pdfs/pant3/dijkgr.pdf and at the website http://superstringtheory.com/math/math2.html. Is there any book that covers string theory in more of a mathematical aspect?
Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!
I would recommend S.T. Yau's book on Mathematical Aspects of String Theory, following @Tomas Smith. There is also a two volume set based on lectures given at Princeton. The books can be found on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Fields-Strings-Course-Mathematicians/dp/0821820125 and http://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Fields-Strings-Course-Mathematicians/dp/0821820133/ref=pd_bxgy_14_text_y. Then, there is of course the "Big Yellow Book" on Mirror Symmetry by Vafa, Hori et.al This is available in a pdf form from the Clay Maths Institute: http://www.claymath.org/library/monographs/cmim01c.pdf
You can also find the notes on the course website: https://www.math.ias.edu/qft
Of course, there are more mathematical reviews on string theory which can be found on the arXiv. An example here is a set of notes by Brian Greene on String Theory on CY manifolds http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9702155. You can also find numerous notes on string theory and connections to number theory, geometry and algebraic geometry online.
Hope this helps.
