The aim of the project is to study time-dependent backgrounds in perturbative string theory and beyond. These include both closed and open string tachyon decay as well as closed string backgrounds with cosmological singularities. All examples we plan to study possess an AdS/CFT-like non-perturbative formulation so that we can investigate the limits of string perturbation theory.
