Das elegante Universum: Superstrings, verborgene Dimensionen und die Suche nach der Weltformel
By Brian Greene
A interesting and thought-provoking trip throughout the mysteries of house, time, and matter.
With a brand new preface (not in the other version) that would overview the large public reception of the rather imprecise string theory—made attainable through this e-book and an elevated variety of adherents among physicists—The stylish Universe "sets a customary that might be not easy to beat" (New York occasions publication Review). Brian Greene, one of many world's top string theorists, peels away the layers of puzzle surrounding string idea to bare a universe that comprises 11 dimensions, the place the cloth of house tears and maintenance itself, and all matter—from the smallest quarks to the main gargantuan supernovas—is generated through the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of strength.
Today physicists and mathematicians in the course of the international are feverishly engaged on probably the most formidable theories ever proposed: superstring thought. String conception, because it is frequently referred to as, is the main to the Unified box conception that eluded Einstein for greater than thirty years. eventually, the century-old antagonism among the big and the small-General Relativity and Quantum Theory-is resolved. String conception announces that each one of the wondrous happenings within the universe, from the frantic dancing of subatomic quarks to the majestic swirling of heavenly galaxies, are reflections of 1 grand actual precept and manifestations of 1 unmarried entity: microscopically tiny vibrating loops of strength, a billionth of a billionth the dimensions of an atom. during this brilliantly articulated and refreshingly transparent publication, Greene relates the clinical tale and the human fight in the back of twentieth-century physics' look for a concept of every little thing.
Through the masterful use of metaphor and analogy, The dependent Universe makes essentially the most refined techniques ever reflected viscerally available and punctiliously exciting, bringing us nearer than ever to knowing how the universe works.
