Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and Mtheory Cambridge University

 Education
Mtheory is an 11dimensional quantum theory of gravity which, in addition to gravitons and other particlelike excitations, includes extended objects known as membranes and five branes. Though a complete definition of Mtheory is not yet known, it is proposed as a nonperturbative formulation of superstring theory and as such is a compelling candidate for a unified theory of the fundamental particles and forces in Nature. Much has been learned about Mtheory through its symmetries and its relation to supergravity and string theory and this has in turn led to important results in superstring theory and quantum gauge theory.
