Hi!Raw Message

So far I haven't found any thread dealing with the question of what

would be the best approach to string theory for a physics student

who wants to learn more about string theory, starting from zero.

Obviously, string theory is a "phenomenon" in popular sciences that

focuses the interest of the public tremendously and at the same time

is extremely difficult to handle on a purely scientific level. So I

think that the above question is of great importance.

As a student of physics I would love to know what I should focuse on

in my studies if I am interested in working on the string theory later

in my life. Is it easy to find out whether one really has the intel-

lectual capacity to be working successfully on this field?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

Best regards

Holger
