There has always been a close and extremely fruitful interaction between Lie theory and mathematical physics-an old example is Gell-Mann's flavour symmetry using the representation theory of the Lie algebra $su_3$. But this interaction has clearly deepened and blossomed significantly with the arrival of string theory.
