An Introduction to String Theory
by James Bedford
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 101
Description:
The text provides an introduction to string theory, focusing on the Bosonic string, but treating the superstring as well. A number of appendices on more advanced topics are also provided, including an introduction to orientifolds in various brane configurations. A background in quantum field theory and general relativity is assumed.

Introduction to String Theory
by Thomas Mohaupt - arXiv
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.
