Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Boris Green FRS (born 22 May 1946) is a British physicist and one of the pioneers of string theory. Currently a Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and a Fellow in Clare Hall at the University of Cambridge in England, he succeeded Stephen Hawking on 1 November 2009 as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics.After many years in collaboration with John H. Schwarz, they discovered the anomaly cancellation in type I string theory in 1984. This insight, named the Green-Schwarz mechanism, initiated the First Superstring Revolution. He has also worked on Dirichlet boundary conditions in string theory which have led to the postulation of D-branes.show more
