"Lec 6 - Topics in String Theory" (February 14, 2011) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on string theory and particle physics that focuses on how string theory gives a resolution to the question regarding the entropy in a black hole. In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. In particular, the course focuses on string theory with regard to important issues in contemporary physics. This course was originally presented in Stanford's Continuing Studies program. Leonard Susskind is the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.
