# Category:String theory

Physics portal |

Here is a list of articles in the String theory category of the Physics portal.
**String theory** is a branch of theoretical physics that attempts to build a theory of quantum gravity using one-dimensional strings rather than zero-dimensional point particles as fundamental building blocks. The name *string theory* is somewhat of a misnomer since the modern theory also includes higher dimensional objects known as branes.
