Accessible Introduction for the graduate,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: String Theory and M-Theory: A Modern Introduction (Hardcover)
I have so far found this new string theory book comprehensible and clear.With a knowlege of quantum mechanics , general relativity and some standard undergraduate mathematics especially variational principles, group theory,topology etc.. this book looks like it might be the the way into strings for thousands of students like myself who like myself have wanted to get an actual understanding of the flavour of this highly exciting and controvertial theoretical framework. For self study I think its fabulous as there are many fully worked solution.
I think for a mathematician or a phyics graduate this is a better start point than Zweibach.
