An introduction to matrix superstring models

,
Russian Federation State Scientific Center A.I. Alikhanov Institute ofTheoretical and Experimental Physics, ul. Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya 25, Moscow, 117259, Russian Federation

The recently developed matrix approach to the superstring concept and M-theory is introduced. The Banks-Fishler-Shenker-Susskind matrix theory, built as a supersymmetric matrix quantum mechanics, is considered. Two supersymmetric matrix models providing a non-perturbative formulation of the IIB superstring problem are discussed. Applications to non-perturbative string theory are reviewed.
