Physics Colloquium: Cumrun Vafa
âStrings and the Magic of Extra Dimensionsâ?
The extra dimensions of string theory which were originally viewed as a source of embarrassment for the theory, have proven to be instrumental in resolving a number of puzzles associated with 3+1 dimensional physics. I discuss examples of this in the context of black holes, gauge theory and particle phenomenology.
