Description TOPICS:

  • Perturbative Strings
  • Pure Spinor
  • Strings Twistor
  • Strings Higher Spins and Strings
  • Non-perturbative String and M-theory
  • SUSY Gauge Dynamics
  • LHC and Particle Physics

The Aim of the activity is to provide pedagogical treatment of these subjects in the form of a series of lectures by individual speakers. The activity is intended for theoretical physicists or mathematicians with knowledge of quantum field theory, general relativity and string theory.
