**Introduction to String Field Theory**

by Warren Siegel

**Publisher**: arXiv 2001**Number of pages**: 247

**Description**:

Several of the early chapters are actually on the topic of general (particle/string) field theory, but explained from a new point of view resulting from insights gained from string field theory. A standard course on quantum field theory is assumed as a prerequisite.
