Cosmology describes the evolution of the Universe and is based on a description of its beginning from quantum fluctuations. String theory is the only known consistent theory of quantum gravity that can deal with the highest energy scales near the Planck energy, relevant for cosmology´s beginning. As a result, only string theory can give a fully consistent picture of cosmological origins. This book describes the best current avenues for obtaining cosmology from string theory. It is aimed at graduate students, and also researchers, with some familiarity with cosmology and string theory, however no detailed knowledge is required.
String Theory comprises two volumes which give a comprehensive and pedagogic account of the subject. Volume 1, first published in 1998, provides a thorough introduction to the bosonic string. The first four chapters introduce the central ideas of string theory, the tools of conformal field theory and of the Polyakov path integral, and the covariant quantization of the string. The next three chapters treat string interactions: the general formalism, and detailed treatments of the tree level and one loop amplitudes. Chapter eight covers toroidal compactification and many important aspects of string physics, such as T-duality and D-branes. Chapter nine treats higher-order amplitudes, including an analysis of their finiteness and unitarity, and various nonperturbative ideas. An appendix giving a short course on path integral methods is included. This is an essential text and reference for graduate students and researchers interested in modern superstring theory.
(2015/Sundazed) 16 tracks. Selected from the crown jewels of the rich King-Federal-DeLuxe discography, King Strings features rocking, socking guitar instrumentals from the Cincinnati-based family of labels cut between 1949 and 1962, programmed for power! Fashioned as a vintage King LP from the era and containing a killer line-up of the biggest talents the stable of labels offered, this is the historic various artists collection that should have been issued circa 1962. King was central to the underlying creative flow in R&B during the era, and the recordings here show the depth of style and synergy that the label routinely captured on vinyl. From the proto-funk groove of Hooker’s ´´Stomp Boogie” (under the pseudonym Texas Slim) to two cuts of Baker magic captured in Paris over a decade later, and including key cuts from Freddy King, Albert King, Johnny ´´Guitar” Watson and many others in between, you’ll individually hear a variety of instruments, tones and techniques, but together the clear, common artistry of the players’ sovereign ability, sequenced like a long, climactic solo—this is the sound of some of the most heralded talent of the guitar generation! Includes a rich, detailed insert with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Colin Escott. Join six-string soul royalty for a showcase from the company that called itself The King of Them All!
A collection of riff-tastic songs, spanning twenty years, in a unique new format designed for all guitarists who just use guitar tabulature.

Dvorák’s ´´String Quintet in G major” op. 77, had five movements when it was premiered on 18 March 1876. Its second movement was the ´´Intermezzo” from his ´´String Quartet in E minor” (1870). Later Dvorák removed this movement from the quintet, expanded it, and published it as a separate ´´Notturno” for string orchestra op. 40. The ´´Intermezzo” is included in its original version in the appendix of the score.This edition is based on the ´´Complete Edition of the Works of Antonín Dvorák”, the principal source being the first edition of 1888, for which Dvorák subjected the work to revision.• Dvorák’s famous quintet with double bass• New detailed foreword by Dvorák scholar David Beveridge (Eng/Cz/Ger)• Musical text based on the ´´Complete Edition of the Works of Antonín Dvorák” (series IV, vol. 8) Edition no.: TP 577ISMN: 9790260107182Editor: Bartoš, František / Pokorný, AntonínLanguage(s) of text: English, Czech, GermanProduct format: Study scoreComments: Ersetzt H 2590Binding: StapledPages / Format: XII, 50 S. - 22,3 x 16,5 cm
Dvorák, AntonínSerenade for String Orchestra E major op. 22Dvorák’s ´´Serenade in E major” for string orchestra is one of his most popular and frequently played works. It was written in the spring of 1875, when he had just experienced his first successes at the conductor’s podium and had received a state arts scholarship. The score and parts were published by Bote & Bock, Berlin, in 1879.This Urtext edition is based on the composer’s autograph score. It corrects mistakes found in the first edition and so, for the first time, the editor incorporates omitted passages from the autograph, marking them with ´´Vi-de”. This reconstruction makes it possible to clarify the piece’s structure.
