Superstrings & Related Matters, Procs of the Trieste 2000 Spring Workshop
In this volume, topics such as the AdS/CFT correspondence, non-BPS
states, noncommutative gauge theories and the Randall-Sundrum
scenario are discussed. For the AdS/CFT correspondence, some of its
generalizations, including examples of non-AdS/nonconformal
backgrounds, are described. Myer's effect in this context and
otherwise is also treated. Recent results in the context of non-BPS
states are reviewed, in particular the use of open string field
theory in understanding the related problem of tachyon
condensation. Instantons and solitons in noncommutative gauge
theories are described, as are various issues in the framework of
the Randall-Sundrum scenario.
