About the Author

Andreas Recknagel is a member of staff at the Department of Mathematics, King's College London. His research centers on quantum field theory in two dimensions, in particular conformal field theories and their applications to strings and branes. He is also interested in topological field theory and the relation of non-commutative geometry to quantum field theory. Volker Schomerus is a professor and scientist at the Theory Group of DESY, Hamburg. He has worked intensively in quantum field theory, symmetries in physics, non-commutative geometry and string theory, for which he has received several distinctions. He serves on the editorial board of several prestigious journals.
