Considering particles as strings avoids some of the problems of treating particles as points, and allows a unified treatment of gravity along with the other three forces (electromagnetism, the weak force, and the strong force) in a manner consistent with quantum mechanics. See also string theory.

String band (Mus.), a band of musicians using only, or chiefly, stringed instruments. -- String beans.
