Strings and Teichmueller Space

  • Krystyna Bugajska
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 245)


The subject of string theory originates from the study of the strong interaction. It starts with Regge poles, duality and Veneziano formalizm. Several important issues in string theory can be illustrated by reviewing the original motivation that lead to a dual resonance model of relativistic strings.
