has an exponentially large number[edit]

what should that be????? --Philtime (talk) 20:57, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Finite at all orders[edit]

When was it realised that string theory was finite? Did this predate the first string theory revolution? --Michael C. Price talk 19:11, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Needs strengthening early on[edit]

This article needs a fuller introduction of the context, such as early 20th-century work by Einstein and Theodor Kaluza, as presented in the History section of the main string theory article. See also this TED talk by Brian Greene.[1] I'm not up to the task. Earthlyreason (talk) 08:37, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
