String Theory in Cosmology

  • N. Sánchez
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 427)


In this lecture, I will describe those aspects of string theory which are relevant for Cosmology, with emphasis, for the purposes of this meeting, on the problem of connecting string theory to observational reality.I will talk on
  • fundamental strings

  • cosmic strings

  • the possible connection among them


Vertex Operator Cosmic String Grand Unify Theory Fundamental String Compactification Scheme 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
