In this lecture I will present a brief history of the development of superstring theory, with an emphasis on my own contributions. I will not attempt to give a comprehensive history of string theory, which would deserve an entire dedicated conference of its own. Also, this talk will neither teach you string theory nor try to convince you that it is correct.https://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechAUTHORS:20151217-095213770The M theory five-brane and the heterotic string

Brane actions with chiral bosons present special challenges. Recent progress in the description of the two main examples — the M theory five-brane and the heterotic string — is described. Also, double dimensional reduction of the M theory five-brane on K3 is shown to give the heterotic string.https://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechAUTHORS:20200812-130509510Introduction to M theory and AdS/CFT duality

An introductory survey of some of the developments that have taken place in superstring theory in the past few years is presented. The main focus is on three particular dualities. The first one is the appearance of an 11th dimension in the strong coupling limit of the type IIA theory, which give rise to M theory. The second one is the duality between the type IIB theory compactified on a circle and M theory on a two-torus. The final topic is an introduction to the recently proposed duality between superstring theory or M theory on certain anti de Sitter space backgrounds and conformally invariant quantum field theories.https://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechAUTHORS:20200714-131713633
