"Lec 2 - String Theory and M-Theory" (September 27, 2010) Professor Leonard Susskind discusses how the forces that act upon strings can affect the quantum mechanics. He also reviews many of the theories of relativity that contributed to string theory today. String theory (with its close relative, M-theory) is the basis for the most ambitious theories of the physical world. It has profoundly influenced our understanding of gravity, cosmology, and particle physics. In this course we will develop the basic theoretical and mathematical ideas, including the string-theoretic origin of gravity, the theory of extra dimensions of space, the connection between strings and black holes, the "landscape" of string theory, and the holographic principle. This course was originally presented in Stanford's Continuing Studies program.
