The String Theory

I thought this image represent the mathematical equations of Riemann surfaces, Riemann spheres I learnt.

And Wiki has a sentence to quote me! (lol)

"In string theory, the worldsheets of strings are Riemann surfaces, and the Riemann sphere, being the simplest Riemann surface, plays a significant role. It is also important in twistor theory."
