About this book


During August 1988. a group of 67 physicists from 45 laboratories in 17 countries met in Erice for the 26th Course of the International School of Subnuclear Physics. The countries represented were: Australia. Austria. Canada. China. Czechoslovakia. Denmark. France. Federal Republic of Germany. India. Italy. Poland. Portugal. Spain. Sweden. Switzerland. United Kingdom. and the United States of America. The School was sponsored by the European Physical Society (EPS). the Italian Ministry of Public Education (MPI). the Sicilian Regional Government (ERS). and the Weizmann Institute of Science. The interest in the Superworld is still very high. This is why. for the third year. the Erice School has been devoted. to a great extent. to review the many developments in Superstring. Supermembranes with their problems of quantization and compactification. All these theoretical speculations are very far from the experimental frontier. In order to keep our feet on the ground. a series of lectures was included to cover the status of CP violation. of the Heavy Leptons. together with the projects for new physics at Gran Sasso and Fermi Lab. For completeness. Julian Schwinger reviewed the great problem of Anomalies in Quantum Field Theory and Shelly Glashow gave a closing lecture on the end of Superworld. If nothing new happens. next year there will be no Superworld in Erice.
