1. Dualities, Symmetries and Unbroken Phases in String Theory : Probing the Composite Nature of the String
Sammanfattning : The thesis treats aspects of string/M-theory in anti-de Sitter spacetimes and their supersymmetric completions. By applying the AdS/CFT correspondence, as well as models of spin chains and singletons, we try to attain a better understanding of the underlying symmetries and the unbroken phases of string/M-theory.

Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of an introductory text, which is divided into two parts, and six appended research papers.The first part contains a general discussion on conformal and superconformal symmetry in six dimensions, and treats how the corresponding transformations act on space-time and superspace fields.

Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates certain aspects of a six-dimensional quantum theoryknown as (2,0) theory. This theory is maximally supersymmetric and conformal,making it the most symmetric higher dimensional quantum theory known. It hasresisted an explicit construction as a quantum field theory yet its existence can beinferred from string theory. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : For the first time in the history of physics we stand in front of a theory that might actually serve as a unification of it all - string theory. It provides a self-consistent framework for gravity and quantum mechanics, which naturally incorporates matter and gauge interactions of the type seen in the standard model. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis we give a brief review of the six-dimensional(2,0) theories and how they emerge from the study of string/M-theory. In particular, the A_N version of (2,0) theory is the world-volume theory of N+1 parallel M5-branes in the limit where gravity decouples. LÄS MER
