Who doesn't want to hear something about branes? They provide us with a delightfully interesting object in modern theoretical physics.
This is the first part of a three-part series of lectures on branes and (quantum) field theory given by University of Chicago theoretical physicist David Kutasov at the workshop on Gauge Fields and Strings held at the Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences in September of 2007.
In order to follow this lecture, it is probably a good idea to have a solid understanding of the various elements of quantum field theories, as well as some level of understanding of string theory and M-theory. To this end, the viewer may want to check out the wonderful lectures from Leonard Susskind on these topics found here:
Also, there are lectures I have on my channel as well:
I also highly recommend the following books for anyone serious about studying these topics:
The videos are taken from the INIMS website, wherein you can find the other talks from this delightfully engrossing workshop, as well as plenty of other material (I'm sure...). The website can be found here:
