The author introduces the subject of his book as "the newest approach" to string theory, which he defines in analogy to the point particle theory, as an approach to the calculation of relevant quantities using field theory Lagrangians, instead of "off-shell" S Cited by: : Introduction to String Field Theory (Advanced Mathematical Physics) (): Siegel, W: Books3/5(1).

[Warren Siegel] -- This volume covers the most up-to-date findings on string field theory. It is presented in a new approach as a result of insights gained from the theory.

This includes the use of a universal method. For a gentle introduction to Quantum Field theory (QFT), I would recommend the following: * Quantum Field Theory for the Gifted Amateur, by Lancaster and Blundell.

This will teach you everything you need to know before going into QFT, provided tha. “For anyone interested in the rapidly developing field of string theory (graduate students with the proper physics background), Siegel's book is a particularly good introduction.” Choice, USA “Siegel has played a major role in the application of BRST formalisms for quantization to string theory.

In string field theory (SFT), the appearance of noncommutative geometry, p-adic strings, zeta strings, and strings quantized on a random lattice[38,39]introduce nonlocality.
