The Mathematics of M-Theory Robbert Dijkgraaf Abstract. String theory, ot its modern incarnation M-theory, gives a huge generalization of classical geometry. I indicate how it can be considered as a two-parameter deformation, where one parameter controls the generalization from points to loops, and the other parameter controls the sum over topologies of Riemann surfaces.

10/11/2007 · Unlike LQG, string theory contains a lot of hand waving and intuition. Thus, if one actually wants to learn string theory, it is not the best strategy not to start with it before learning all mathematics that is related to some aspects of string theory. In fact, the book of

Among the attempts to unify quantum theory and gravity, string theory has attracted the most attention. Its premise is simple: Everything is made of tiny strings.

Quantum field theory (QFT) has proven to be a rich source of ideas for mathematics for a long time. However, fundamental questions such as “What is a QFT?” did not have satisfactory mathematical answers, especially on spaces with arbitrary topology, fundamental for the formulation of perturbative string theory.
