String theory as a universal language

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article, based on the Klein lecture, contains some new results and new speculations on various topics. They include discussion of open strings in the AdS space, unusual features of D-branes, conformal gauge theories in higher dimensions. We also comment on the infrared screening of the cosmological constant and on the "brane worlds".
