What is String Theory?


The status of string theory will be examined, and what is known and what is unknown about the theory will be discussed.
String theory has special duality symmetries that do not occur in conventional field theories, and some of the implications of these will be explored, and the implications for the nature of space-time will be investigated.


Coffee and tea will be offered half an hour before the start of the colloquium.
