1
The 26 dimensions of string theory Why string theory? What is string theory? Why 26 dimensions?

2
A theory of everything Newtonian mechanics Special relativity General relativity Quantum mechanics Statistical mechanics Solid state physics Non linear dynamics Biology Particle physics Quantum Gravity ?

3
Quantization p(t), x(t) Classical particle:, Quantum particle

4
Quantization of fields, For a point source at origin For a constant electric field Maxwell equations: <><>

5
Quantum Electro Dynamics The self energy problem. e-e- + m0c2m0c2 E = m0c2m0c2 + = mrc2mrc2 = a

6
Quantum gravity G = T G

Quantum String (light cone gauge) [P i,P j ]=0 [J i,J j ]=i f ijk J k [J i,K j ]=if ijk K k [K i,K j ]=if ijk J k [J i,P j ]=if ijk P k [K i,P j ]=-iH ij [J i,H]=0 [P i,H]=0 [H,H]=0 [K i,H]=-i P i

16
Gauge symmetries Maxwell equations Gauge symmetries (Lorentz gauge) (Coulomb gauge) String equations (Light cone gauge) X 0 +X 1 = Gauge fixing

17
Anomalies Feynmans approach: t=t 0 t=t f ~ħ ? S→S’ = S Dx(t)→Dx(t)’ = Dx(t)

18
String theory String theory is a consistent theory of gravitons. The dimension of space time is fixed by a quantum anomaly. D=26

19
String theory is incorrect. 26 (10) dimensions ??? Possibilities
