Strings with spin

String Theory (Fall, 2010)

October 25, 2010


Spin is introduced in the mass points that strings are built from, creating strings that behave like bosons and fermions.   Then Professor Susskind examines the scattering characteristics of strings and shows that the Veneziano amplitude from meson scattering has string like characteristics.
