Spread a string on each side along the course the ball has taken, from wall to pole, and from pole to wall.

Of course the concert stage is being set too, where Rodney Atkins will perform his long string of hits tomorrow afternoon.
Authorities in Essex County say a dozen people have been arrested for a string of carjackings that took place over the course of the summer.

Finite dimesional Hamiltonian formalism for gauge and field theories
Of course, since our analysis applies to any p-brane it must also be truth for strings which are part of M-theory structure.
Matroids and p-branes
Of course, the set of known examples of string/M theory vacua in M provide us with a lower bound on the number of points it contains.
Observations on the Space of Four Dimensional String and $M$ theory Vacua
Of course it would be great to get some predictions on them from String Theory, but this is not what happens.
Issues on tadpoles and vacuum redefinitions in String Theory
Of course, one has to break supersymmetry at a certain scale to recover the observed physics, but in that case the arising quantum fluctuations are not under control, and moreover some infrared divergences due to the propagation of massless states going into the vacuum can affect the string computations.
Issues on tadpoles and vacuum redefinitions in String Theory
Of course, subtle issues related to modular invariance or to its counterparts in open-string diagrams are of crucial importance if this program is to be properly implemented in String theory, and make the present considerations somewhat incomplete.
Issues on tadpoles and vacuum redefinitions in String Theory
Of course, one might argue that this kind of partition function Z (T ) = P gM e−M/T is not a proper string-theoretic partition function; it assumes that the string is nothing but a collection of the states to which its excitations give rise.

Of course, string theory has both open and closed fundamental strings, and both can interact with the D-branes.

The Faddeev-Popov ghosts, of course, were not involved in dual models or string theory at this stage.
Factorization in Dual Models and Functional Integration in String Theory
For the upper half-plane, this factor is of course a constant; however, we require it for the string diagram and, since it requires regularization, it is not invariant under a conformal transformation.
Factorization in Dual Models and Functional Integration in String Theory
Of course, if one is to treat the modified theory as descending from string theory or particle physics, then ϑ is required to be a pseudo-scalar as the dynamical theory also requires.

Of course, the action (7.12) is not (truncated) effective action of heterotic string theory.

This deterministic system identification, of course, obtains only under the assumption that the string length is fixed for all observers and their random variables are identically distributed, both of which are not plausible in the case of actual quantum mechanical observers.
