"Lec5 - String Theory and M-Theory" (October 18, 2010) Professor Leonard Susskind delivers a lecture concerning plonck variables and how they relate to string theory in the context of modern physics. 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.
