Introduction to Particle Physics and String Theory

Jaemo Park

POSTECH, Korea

Abstract

This is the introductory overview  of particle physics and string theory for non-particle-physicis majors. Important concepts and basic structures of paricle physics are introduced. After that, the physics of the black hole is explained. After the perturbative string theory is introduced, the recent developments of the nonperturbative aspects of string theory and holography are explored. If the time permits, more technical exposition will be given on the recent development of AdS4/CFT3 correspondence.
