Where is the math?[edit]

The usual in physics is to model things mathematically. If strings are not themselves mathematical objects, presumably they are modeled by mathematical objects. I would expect some mathematical definitions. Thanks if you can help.CountMacula (talk) 19:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Modes of open strings?[edit]

In the final sentence of Closed and open strings:

(...) In certain string theories the lowest-energy vibration of an open string is a tachyon and can undergo tachyon condensation. Other vibrational modes of open strings exhibit the properties of photons and gluons.

Isn't the representation (open or closed) of photons and gluons dependent on the model as well? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.215.5.255 (talk) 20:03, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
