Beginning with a systematic review of the standard exposition of string theory, which is required for a proper understanding of matrix models of string theory, this book proceeds to provide a comprehensive presentation of matrix models of string theory and their areas of applications. Supplemented with exercises and an appendix on Monte Carlo algorithms and methods used for matrix models of string theory, this work provides both a valuable self-study guide for postgraduate students and a comprehensive review and reference guide for researchers.

Badis Ydri—cur­rently a pro­fes­sor of the­o­ret­i­cal par­ti­cle physics, teach­ing at the In­sti­tute of Physics, Badji Mokhtar Annaba Uni­ver­sity, Al­ge­ria—re­ceived his PhD from Syra­cuse Uni­ver­sity, New York, USA and in 2011 his Ha­bil­i­ta­tion from Annaba Uni­ver­sity, Annaba, Al­ge­ria. Pro­fes­sor Ydri is also a re­search as­so­ci­ate at the Dublin In­sti­tute for Advanced Stud­ies, Dublin, Ire­land, and a reg­u­lar ICTP as­so­ci­ate at the Abdus Salam Cen­ter for The­o­ret­i­cal Physics, Tri­este, Italy. His post-doc­toral ex­pe­ri­ence com­prises a Marie Curie fel­low­ship at Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity Berlin, Ger­many, and a Hamil­ton fel­low­ship at the Dublin In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Stud­ies, Ire­land. His cur­rent re­search di­rec­tions include: the gauge/grav­ity du­al­ity; the renor­mal­iza­tion group method in ma­trix and non­com­mu­ta­tive field the­o­ries; non-com­mu­ta­tive and ma­trix field the­ory; quan­tum grav­ity as emer­gent geom­e­try, emer­gent grav­ity and emer­gent cos­mol­ogy from ma­trix mod­els.
