520    An accessible introduction to string theory, this book 
       provides a detailed and self-contained demonstration of 
       the main concepts involved. The first part deals with 
       basic ideas, reviewing special relativity and 
       electromagnetism while introducing the concept of extra 
       dimensions. D-branes and the classical dynamics of 
       relativistic strings are discussed next, and the 
       quantization of open and closed bosonic strings in the 
       light-cone gauge, along with a brief introduction to 
       superstrings. The second part begins with a detailed study
       of D-branes followed by string thermodynamics. It 
       discusses possible physical applications, and covers T-
       duality of open and closed strings, electromagnetic fields
       on D-branes, Born-Infeld electrodynamics, covariant string
       quantization and string interactions. Primarily aimed as a
       textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate
       courses, it will also be ideal for a wide range of 
       scientists and mathematicians who are curious about string
       theory.
