By Sergio Scarlatti

Classical string concept is worried with the propagation of classical one-dimensional curves, i.e. "strings", and has connections to the calculus of adaptations, minimum surfaces and harmonic maps. The quantization of string thought supplies upward push to difficulties in numerous components, based on the tactic used. The illustration concept of Lie, Kac-Moody and Virasoro algebras has been used for such quantization. during this booklet, the authors provide an creation to worldwide analytic and probabilistic points of string thought, bringing jointly and making specific the required mathematical instruments. Researchers with an curiosity in string idea, in both arithmetic or theoretical physics, will locate this a stimulating quantity.
