String Theory: from Gauge Interactions to Cosmology: by Laurent Baulieu, Jan de Boer, Boris Pioline, Eliezer

By Laurent Baulieu, Jan de Boer, Boris Pioline, Eliezer Rabinovici

String idea is our present top candidate for the unification of all basic forces, together with gravity, in a constant quantum framework. during this choice of lectures brought on the Cargèse summer time college "String idea: from Gauge Interactions to Cosmology'', global best specialists supply an updated survey of the most recent advancements during this subject, together with the gauge/gravity correspondence, superstring cosmology and cosmic strings, topological string concept and matrix types, physics past the normal version and the panorama of vacua of string idea, conformal box conception and demanding phenomena in statistical mechanics. Many extra issues also are mentioned in shorter contributions through institution contributors. Written with an emphasis on pedagogy, this quantity should be a worthwhile source to scholars and specialists alike.

Elementare Analysis: Von der Anschauung zur Theorie (Mathematik Primar- und Sekundarstufe) (German Edition)

In diesem Lehrbuch finden Sie einen Zugang zur Differenzial- und Integralrechnung, der ausgehend von inhaltlich-anschaulichen Überlegungen die zugehörige Theorie entwickelt. Dabei entsteht die Theorie als Präzisierung und als Überwindung der Grenzen des Anschaulichen. Das Buch richtet sich an Studierende des Lehramts Mathematik für die Sekundarstufe I, die „Elementare research" als „höheren Standpunkt" für die Funktionenlehre benötigen, Studierende für das gymnasiale Lehramt oder in Bachelor-Studiengängen, die einen sinnstiftenden Zugang zur research suchen, und an Mathematiklehrkräfte der Sekundarstufe II, die ihren Analysis-Lehrgang stärker inhaltlich als kalkülorientiert gestalten möchten.

18) where cijk stand for the G2 -invariant tensor made of octonionic structure coefficients, and ϕ is a Higgs field. The BRST quantization of this topological term yields a twisted version of the dimensional reduction to seven dimensions of the D=8 super Yang–Mills action on a manifold with Spin(7) or SU (4) holonomy. Basically, the topological gauge functions are the generalization of Bogolmony equations in 7 dimensions, as shown in [4]. G2 manifolds of the kind Σ6 × S1 , where Σ6 is a Calabi–Yau 3-fold, are of special interest both for mathematical [15] and physical [12] applications.
