Spontaneous symmetry breaking in string theory

We study how higher symmetry in string theory is broken to that at present by clarifying fundamental degrees of freedom in a whole string theory.

Research Themes

Nonperturbative formulation of string theory based on matrix model
Spontaneous symmetry breaking in the large-N limit
Space-time structure described by matrix models
Relation between perturbative series in string theory or field theory and its nonperturbative effect
