This priceless booklet presents a short advent to the rudiments of perturbative string conception and an in depth creation to the extra present subject of D-brane dynamics. The presentation is especially pedagogical, with a lot of the technical aspect streamlined. The fast yet hugely coherent advent to the topic is likely to be what distinguishes this ebook from different string conception or D-brane books. the cloth is predicated on mini-courses introduced by means of the writer at a variety of summer time faculties in theoretical excessive strength physics, so its real point has been adequately established.
