Item description for Gauge Fields and Strings: Contemporary Concepts in Physics, Volume 3 (Contemporary Concepts in Physics) by Polyakov...
A.M. Polyakov, one of the world's foremost leaders on the subject of field theory, has created a book from his own scientific diary, synthesizing the most promising approaches and ideals in field theory today. Polyakov presents such subjects as statistical mechanics, quantum field theory and their interrelation, continuous global symmetry, non-Abelian gauge fields, instantons and the quantum theory of loops, and quantum strings and random surfaces. This book is ideally suited for postgraduate students studying field theory and statistical mechanics and for research workers in continuous global theory.

From Ising To Gauge Fields and Strings Nov 22, 2001
This book manifests the author's unique perspective on physics. The author claims that the profound aspect of quantum gauge fields is that they can almost be regarded as the theory of strings. These strings are in essence the Faraday flux lines. The deeper understanding of quantum physics involving gauge fields demands the study of dynamics of quantum strings. Quantum strings turn out to produce the graviton thus can give a theory of quantum gravity. These are all pioneered by the author for past three decades and neatly explained in this book.
