Abstract Note  The purpose of this book is to thoroughly prepare the reader for research in string theory. It is intended as a textbook in the sense that, starting from the basics, the material is presented in a pedagogical and selfcontained fashion. The emphasis is on the worldsheet perspective of closed strings and of open strings ending on Dbranes, where twodimensional conformal field theory is the main tool. Compactifications of string theory, with and without fluxes, and string dualities are also discussed from the spacetime point of view, i.e. in geometric language. Endofchapter references have been added to guide the reader intending to pursue further studies or to start research in the topics covered by this book
