Title: | Introduction to Supergravity [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Yoshiaki Tanii |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book is a pedagogical introduction to supergravity, a gravitational field theory that includes supersymmetry (symmetry between bosons and fermions) and is a generalization of Einstein's general relativity. Supergravityprovides a low-energy effec tive theory of superstring theory, which has attracted much attention as a candidate for the unified theory of fundamental particles, and it is a useful tool for studying non-perturbative properties ofsuperstring theory such as D-branes and string duality . This work considers classical supergravities in four and higher spacetime dimensions with their applications to superstring theory in mind. More concretely, it discusses classicalLagrangians (or field equations) and symmetry properties of supergravities . Besides local symmetries, supergravities often have global non-compact symmetries, which play a crucial role in their applications to superstring theory. Oneof the main features of this book is its detailed discussion of these non-compact symmetries. Th e aim of the book is twofold. One is to explain the basic ideas of supergravity to those who are not familiar with it. Toward that end, thediscussions are made both pedagogical and concrete by stating equations explicitly. The other is to collect relevant formulae in one place so as to be useful for applications to string theory. The subjects discussed in this bookinclude the vielbein formulation of gravity, supergravities in four dimensions, possible types of spinors in various dimensions, superalgebras and supermultiplets, non-linear sigma models for non-compact Lie groups, electric-magneticduality symmetries, supergravities in higher dimensions, dimensional reductions, and gauged and massive supergravities |

Title: | Basic Concepts of String Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The purpose of this book is to thoroughly prepare the reader for research in string theory. It is intendedas a textbook in the sense that, starting from the basics, the material is presented in a pedagogical andself-containedfashion. The emphasis is on the world-sheet perspective of closed strings and of open strings ending on D-branes, where two-dimensional conformal field theory is the main tool.Compactifications of string theory, with and withoutfluxes, and string dualities are also discussed from the space-timepoint of view, i.e. in geometric language. End-of-chapter references have been added to guide the reader intending to pursue furtherstudies or to start research inthe topics covered by this book |

Title: | D-Brane [electronic resource] : Superstrings and New Perspective of Our World |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Superstring theory is a promising theory which can potentiallyunify all the forces and the matters in particle physics. A new multi-dimensional object which is called D-brane was found. It drastically changed ourperspective of a unified world. We may live on membrane-like hypersurfaces in higher dimensions (braneworld scenario), or we can create blackholes at particle accelarators, or the dynamics of quarks is shown to be equivalent to thehigher dimensional gravity theory. All these scenarios are exp lained in this book with plain words but with little use of equations and with many figures. The book starts with a summary of long-standing problems in elementary particlephysics and explains the D-branes and many applications of them. It ends with futur e roads for a unified ultimate theory of our world. |

Note: | This book gives a detailed and self-contained introduction into the theory of spectral functions, with an emphasis on their applications to quantum field theory. All methods are illustrated with applications to specific physicalproblems from the fore front of current research, such as finite-temperature field theory, D-branes, quantum solitons and noncommutativity. In the first part of the book, necessary background information on differential geometry andquantization, including less standard material , is collected. The second part of the book contains a detailed description of main spectral functions and methods of their calculation. In the third part, the theory is applied to severalexamples (D-branes, quantum solitons, anomalies, noncommutativity). More than hundred exercises together with their solutions are included.This book addresses advanced graduate students and researchers in mathematical physics and inneighbouring areaswith basic knowledge of quantum field theory and differential geometry. The aim is to prepare readers to use spectral functions in their own research, in particular in relation to heat kernels and zeta functions |

Title: | Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String Theory [electronic resource] |

Note: | Intersection cohomology assigns groups which satisfy a generalized form of Poincar duality over the rationals to a stratified singular space. The present monograph introduces a method that assigns to certain classes ofstratified spaces cell complexes , called intersection spaces, whose ordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincar duality. The cornerstone of the method is a process of spatial homology truncation, whose functorialityproperties are analyzed in detail. The material on truncati on is autonomous and may be of independent interest to homotopy theorists. The cohomology of intersection spaces is not isomorphic to intersection cohomology and possessesalgebraic features such as perversity-internal cup-products and cohomology operation s that are not generally available for intersection cohomology. A mirror-symmetric interpretation, as well as applications to string theory concerningmassless D-branes arising in type IIB theory during a Calabi-Yau conifold transition, are discussed |
