STRINGS, GAUGE FIELDS AND MEMBRANES [chapter]

RICHARD J. SZABO
2005 From Fields to Strings: Circumnavigating Theoretical Physics  
We present an overview of the intimate relationship between string and D-brane dynamics, and the dynamics of gauge and gravitational fields in three spacetime dimensions. The successes, prospects and open problems in describing both perturbative and nonperturbative aspects of string theory in terms of three-dimensional quantum field theory are highlighted.
