A solution manual for Polchinski's
by Matthew Headrick
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 115
The author present detailed solutions to 81 of the 202 problems in J. Polchinski's two-volume textbook 'String Theory', the most comprehensive text addressing the discoveries of the superstring revolutions of the early to mid 1990's, which mark the beginnings of modern string theory.

An introduction to superstring theory: classical strings, covariant and light-cone quantization, supersymmetric strings, anomaly cancelation, compactification, T-duality, supersymmetry breaking, and threshold corrections to low-energy couplings.
by Washington Taylor, Barton Zwiebach - arXiv
Introduction to tachyon condensation in Witten's cubic bosonic open string field theory. We use both the low-energy Yang-Mills description and the language of string field theory to explain the problem of tachyon condensation on unstable D-branes.

These notes give an introduction to string theory for students and interested researches. No previous knowledge of string theory is assumed. The focus is on gravitational aspects and we explain how gravity is described in string theory.
