Introduction to String Theory

 

Abstract:

String Theory is an explanation of physical reality in terms of a fundamental particle that is not point-like, but rather extended as a thin filament of very small but finite length. We will see how String Theory fits into the historical development of physics, and how it aims to provide a unified description of all fundamental interactions. We go on to consider the properties of strings as relativistic objects. Importantly, experimental verification and predictions of String Theory are also examined.

This discussion is the introductory talk of a seminar series to be presented by the author at TCNJ over the course of the Fall 2017 semester.
