Classical string thought is worried with the propagation of classical one-dimensional curves, i.e. "strings", and has connections to the calculus of adaptations, minimum surfaces and harmonic maps. The quantization of string idea offers upward thrust to difficulties in several components, in accordance with the strategy used. The illustration thought of Lie, Kac-Moody and Virasoro algebras has been used for such quantization. during this booklet, the authors supply an creation to worldwide analytic and probabilistic features of string thought, bringing jointly and making particular the required mathematical instruments. Researchers with an curiosity in string idea, in both arithmetic or theoretical physics, will locate this a stimulating quantity.

E), the space of holomorphic quadratic differentials on £ which are real on S£, is the cotangent space of Tp at S. The tangent space of Tp at £ is the space # ( £ ) of harmonic Beltrami differentials on E: if <&dz2 € Q(£), and X2(z)dzdz is a conformal metric, then \i(z) K ' dz and conversely. In real notation, if h"k is tracefree and divergencefree, h';3=93kh':k is the corresponding tangent vector. The preceding considerations are only valid if the genus p of the Schottky double of our surface is at least 2.

As a subgroup of D1, VQ also acts on the spaces Mk and Mk_^ defined in the preceding section. We first consider the action M^ x P { + 1 -» A*g € . M " . Consequently, the space of orbits is independent of / and A;. 1: Let p > 2, where p is the genus of the Schottky double Sd of S. 1). In order to define a differentiable structure on Tp compatible with the differentiable structures on the spaces Mh, we shall use the concept of harmonic maps between surfaces. Let S , £' be compact Riemann surfaces, possibly with boundary.
