M-theory is an 11-dimensional quantum theory of gravity which, in addition to gravitons and other particle-like excitations, includes extended objects known as membranes and five- branes. Though a complete definition of M-theory is not yet known, it is proposed as a nonperturbative formulation of superstring theory and as such is a compelling candidate for a unified theory of the fundamental particles and forces in Nature. Much has been learned about M-theory through its symmetries and its relation to supergravity and string theory and this has in turn led to important results in superstring theory and quantum gauge theory.

Application of Branes in String & M-theory

I believe that Cambridge university is giving the public a really nice gift in the form of lectures that helps the layperson try to understand the many theories discussed.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart, currently i am a student wondering whether physics or math is good or me & i wanted to get a an idea of what the frontiers of physics & math will do for the future
