Since 1989, the annual Strings conference has brought together theoretical physicists from all over the world to survey and discuss the latest developments in string theory. The latest edition of this international encounter – Strings 07 – was organized in Madrid by the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP), a mixed center belonging to the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), with the support of the BBVA Foundation. On this occasion, the scientific program closed with a public lecture held in the Foundation.
This DVD includes the lectures given by David Gross, director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (University of California at Santa Barbara) and the 2004 Nobel Laureate in physics for his discoveries on the workings of the atomic nucleus, Juan Maldacena, professor at the Institute for Advanced Study of Princeton University and author of discoveries facilitating the microscopic description of black holes; and Lisa Randall of Harvard University, a successful researcher and popularizer of science whose work on extra dimensions helps explain the differing intensity of gravitational interaction and the remaining forces (electromagnetic, weak and strong).
