The impact has been through many major conceptual and methodological developments in quantum field theory in the past fifteen years. In addition, string theory has exerted a dramatic influence on developments in contemporary mathematics, including GromovWitten theory, mirror symmetry in complex and symplectic geometry, and important ramifications in enumerative geometry. This volume is derived from a conference of younger leading practitioners around the common theme: "What is string theory?" The talks covered major current topics, both mathematical and physical, related to string theory. Titles in this series are copublished with International Press, Cambridge, MA. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in string theory in mathematics and physics.
