String theory: built from
The origin tells only why string theory was created. What where the methods drawn from to do so? Hyacinth 05:29, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
has an exponentially large number
Finite at all orders
Needs strengthening early on
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.

- Funny, I always wondered what Kaku's credentials were. While he's clearly published a lot, nothing there jumps out at me as the same level of notability as what is being presented in the article. Was there something in particular you felt was notable and missing? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:39, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Shouldn't this page include at least some mention of the controversy surrounding certain aspects of string theory?
- If it's notable, and relevant to the history. If it has no historical component, then it would be more appropriate for the string theory article itself.
