String Steilkurs 2015 - Part II: "Advanced Topics in String Theory"

Jul 20 – 31, 2015
The course is divided into a preparatory 1st week and a more advanced 2nd week. The lectures focus on current topics in String Theory and Mathematical Physics. Knowledge in Quantum Field Theory, General Relativity and  the basics of String Theory is assumed.
