String Cosmology

by Edna Cheung (Nanjing University)

String theory has facilated dramatic progress in mathematics in the past decade. As physicists, we are interested in knowing if string theory can make predictions for Nature. Can we make testable models for the early universe physics where strings are supposed to behave very differently from point particles? Can we really make use of the dramatical modification of the notion of space and time coming out of string theory in a consistent mathematical frame work? I will convey some of the exciting developments in formulating cosmological models using string theory.
